I do not manage the books the students check out, but as the year goes on
and I get to know the students, if I see they are checking out the same
book or the same types of books each week, I make suggestions.  There are
also times during the year when I require an award winner or Battle Book as
one of their 2.  Other times teachers make them read certain genre, but I
feel like we are trying to encourage reading and it shouldn't be limiting.
That's just my 2 cents.
