Getting Johnny and Susie To Read (their mathematics books)

Mention mathematics textbooks to college or university mathematics faculty, and within five minutes there will be a statement to the effect, "But students won't/don't read the textbook!" Thus, it seemed worthwhile to have a mini-series on the subject in the Innovative Teaching Exchange. How does one get students to read the text, and help them read mathematics generally? The first article in the (online) exchange, by Louise Amick, has already addressed this issue. Here are three more. We would be happy to have further contributions on this topic.
