A survey conduct by University of Toronto states than only thirty percent of men have picked up a book to read since school. Reading daily new paper from the subway stands or even watching the twenty-four news was not considered as actually reading. The survey states that men are just not interested in reading a novel. So, this June- Fashion Weekly Magazine has created a list of four books that would make men want to read – whether through an app on their tablet or the hard copy from Indigo or Amazon.ca, these books will intrigue them to maybe go for another book right after!
Book 1: The Road (By Cormac McCarthy)
This is a story about the relationship between a father and son as they try to survive through the global catastrophe. This book features all the negative impacts that can be caused by global warming and also, tells the story of how a young son turns into a man with his father’s teachings for daily survival.
Book 2: The Pearl (By John Steinbeck)
