How do we keep children reading?

Philip Pullman in The Times 29 Sept 2012 says: "Short of a universal power blackout, all I can suggest is get lots of of good books, leave them around, occasionally read to them a bit---and stop at an exciting part. Put them on a high shelf and say, 'Those books are not for you, they're too strong, you're not old enough yet'...and then go out."
His versions of the Grimm Tales is just out--but they're not for you, they're too strong and you're not old enough yet.
