I have to say that this is a brilliant and practical idea. Reading is a very good way to know the culture and how the world is going, making people to love reading is a fundamental approach to help. I especially agree with your idea that teaching people to fish is far more important than given them fish. On the other side, this idea is very practical. I am attracted by its simplicity which is critical to make it work. There is only one thing I have concern, can the reading aloud activity last long when you stop motivating them. Can it be an autonomous activity without outside help?
