Accelerated Reader works wonders, assuming you use it properly. We have used it for about 10 years at our school, and the before/after difference in reading scores and number of books read was amazing. We use individual, non-material rewards, like a Wall of Fame, as well as group rewards like ice cream socials. Accelerated Reader is part of best-practice teaching, period.
