In this paper I will try to find out what motives or demotivates reading for kids and teenagers. Studies show that boys read less books than boys and through interview, statistics and different theories I try to figure out what causes this difference between the sexes. I will also examine how this lack of interest in books can affect the boys when they grow up. Boys not reading much is not a new problem. It had been known for years and though several attempts have been made to change this, none has worked lastingly so far. Growing up in house with book and parents who read aloud motivates kids to read, and for boys especially male role models who read are motivating. A lack of these male role models in addition to the boys generally negative attitude towards reading and reading being seen as something only nerds and/or girls do demotivates the boys from reading. When boys do find something they are interested in reading, such as horror or action, they are being held back and told that that kind of literature is " literature ". This problem concerning boys lacking interest in reading is very serious, as it is possibly a part of why women are better educated than men, and this an issue that concerns the entire society.
