Bookurious Canadian teens

Got a teen reader (or non reader - this might get them interested!) in your house?

Random House Canada has just created this really great social network for teen readers aged 13-17. From the site:

"Bookurious [book-yoor-ee-uhs]

1. – noun. A network for teens who exhibit a curiousity for books and reading

.2. – adj. To be drawn to books; have the desire to read almost anything.

Are you a teen who loves to read books; books big and small, fictional or otherwise?

Do you find yourself thinking “I would so rather be reading right now”?Then you are Bookurious. is a community designed especially for avid Canadian readers aged 13 to 17. Join today to talk to other teens about your favourite books and discover new authors. You’ll also find fun challenges, cool giveaways and tons of reading suggestions.If you love books, you’ll love"

They're on Facebook too!

I'll be mentioning this one to the teens at my local library. Great idea!
