Boys who live with books ‘earn more as adults’ is the headline of an article in The Guardian today about a new study.

Here’s an excerpt:

Men-brought-up-insssss

The researchers aren’t sure if it’s causal or correlational. However, I’ve previously posted about similar studies that might be a little more in-depth (see More On The Importance Of Home Libraries).

Nevertheless, it still provides at least some research support for the generous partnership we have with Davis Friends of the Library, who provide all our English Language Learner students substantial home libraries.

I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.
