RFL Project

Has anyone ever heard of Flat Stanley?
Well a few years ago my cousin was sent "flat Stanley", and he had to take pictures with Stanley and write some sort of a journal. I'm not really sure how it works....
The whole idea of Flat Stanley is he is a paper (for lack of a better word) doll that is posted to children who have to spend a certain amount of time with Stanley and keep a journal, documenting the places and activities in which Flat Stanley is involved. Stanley is a character from a book by Jeff Brown , and this book is read by the children first to become acquainted with Stanley.
As you can see it is a great idea, helping children read and write.
 But what about teenagers?
Some will think it's a cool idea, but others might find it weird and embarrassing taking pictures with a paper doll.
So wouldn't it be so cool if instead of Flat Stanley it was a book.
And instead of children it was teenagers.
I'm not saying that you'd have to take pictures with the book, just read it.
I just don't think enough teenagers read and enjoy books as much as they should. This book wouldn't be boring. It would be relevant and maybe something we could relate to. Language should be descriptive and engaging but nothing with "thou" and "thy". You would fall in love with the characters and remember them long after you finished the gripping story.
So a good book would be sent via mail along with a letter informing them of the project and everyone who reads it would sign their name/initials/nickname/only first name on the available space at the start or the end of the book.
I think I'd call it the Marian Project... just kidding!
How about ...the RFL Project .... Reading for Life!

P.S This is not a real project and I am not creating it... just a thought.
Happy Reading!
