Only Boys Need Read?!

These works are classics because they are models of literature. Although Barnes & Noble would only have young boys buy these books, they are model works of literature for boys AND girls.

I do hope Barnes & Noble plans to be consistent with its no-girls rule by labeling its entire math and science sections "for boys only" too...

The books look great. But I am so turned off by the marketing of the adventure stories package as "for boys." Yes, I know that girls and their parents have the prerogative to buy them as well, but children are easily manipulated by marketing. And it just perpetuates the pigeon-holing many parents are battling against. The same goes for the "for girls" label on the fantasty package. It is sooo last century. I have a girl and a boy, who are happy to read both. Come on, Barnes & Noble, how about removing the gender labels from your categories and join the rest of us in the (post-feminist?!) 21st century.
