Say, are your parents always bugging you to do stupid things like “read” and “pay attention”?

Well, in an attempt to get teens to hit the books, a public library in Humboldt, Iowa is using Guitar Hero to lure them into the wornderful world of the written word.

Yes, gaming fans from local schools were invited to the library to play the game in the confines of the study hall. Problem is, peers from the library's Teen Advisory Board used the opportunity to encourage reading as a fun past-time.

WTF?

How dare you, Teen Advisory Board, take advantage of my gaming state to peddle “books” on me and push through your pro-reading agenda! That is just plain wrong…
