My nine-year-old son has graduated to read books all by himself, and we have set it a goal to read at least 45 minutes every day. This means that I have been on a mission to find the best Books for tweens. At this stage books needs to be interesting, full of mystery, adventure and have a great story line to capture the attention of tweens, especially if you want tween boys to read. Tween boys would much rather play video games, play outside or play ball, than they would like to sit inside and read a book.

Amazon is one of my favorite places to find Books for tweens. My second favorite place to find books for tweens is at my local thrift store, because I can always find treasures there. Amazon is great though, because I can find just the book I need, when I need it. I love the fact that I can get free shipping on orders of $25+, and I usually have a gift certificate or two up my sleeves as well.
