Taking a Break from Reading Books

You know, sometimes my brain just needs a break from all the reading I do.  Not very often do I "not feel like reading a book", but right now I don't have many recommendations and so I am taking a break.  If anyone wants to give me some recommendations of great books to read for myself or with a 14 year old boy who is a "STRUGGLING" reader, please let me know.  I would welcome any ideas.

I Just Finished "Wonderstruck" with Sam! A Great Read!

Book Description

Sam and I just finished reading "Wonderstruck" together.  It's such a great book for ages about 8 and up, but when I say "UP", I mean it.  I think many adults would enjoy this book.  It's a very simple read and thus great for the struggling reader.  Half of the story is drawn in sketch form, similar to "Hugo" and the other half is in words.  The two stories finally collide as time goes by.  Both children are looking for something they are missing in life and both find it in the end.  I like stories with happy endings.
