When I was a primary teacher in my classes I made the story part of the theme so for example when doing Exploration we did project work on great explorers, wrote stories about space explorers, pretended to be explorers on our local common and read AR (among others). Some loved AR, some were polite, some went to sleep. The same happened with other authors. All became readers of some sort, about half I reckon will continue reading novels for pleasure, about quarter remember AR books with pleasure and might read them among other books to their children. About2 or 3% loved the books and will reread them for themselves. I reckon that is not bad.
