You're the only person that's gonna pull you through - Ooh, with your attitude (The Kinks)

One of my students told me today that she doesn't like reading - that there are so many other, better things she could be doing with her time.

I'm struggling to understand that attitude.

Given she doesn't have access to social media, television, youtube or a phone I'm not sure what she means by better things (I didn't like to pry).

This has been a situation I have come across before - how to attract reluctant readers to embrace the joys I feel when I read books.

Whether I've been successful in the past is largely an unknown, but it remains one of my goals and a challenge that I keep embracing!
