Low or Reluctant?

The two words aren’t synonyms! If they are low, I believe you’ve gotten fantastic resources from other posters.

If they are reluctant - as in reticent to read bc they don’t enjoy it, or feel cheated out of a more “fun” elective...
I suggest really amping up battle of the books, creating serious competition, teaming up students, including 40 book challenges (adjust number and required genres based on time restriction), literature circles, books followed by their movie fit comparison, readers theaters/mini plays, or even forensics-type performance literature like poetry, prose, duos humorous or dramatic, etc. you could make it really entertaining!
