James Patterson on Middle School and Publishing

James Patterson, best-selling author and "book activist," just offered all NYC public school 6th graders a free copy of his book, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. He talks about his role as an advocate for books, bookstores...and the publishing business in Hachette's battle with Amazon.... What book would you like to share with every 6th grader?
