Girls vs Boys

There are "Girl" books and "Boy" books.
Not every book falls into one of these categories.

They begin on the picture book shelves and continue all the way to the young adult selections.

Boys will not read, no way, no how, what they consider a "girl" book once they become readers. Typically.
