    We use both PMs and Ready to Reads for guided reading, with other types of texts being used at each level if available. We only use RtR's for running records and find that the new RtR's are very readable by the children at the end of the level - there is no difference between them and the PM's when they know the vocab and context. I agree that levelling isn't consistent and you do have to make a teacher judgement about some books rather than go with the publishers judgement, otherwise they become dead readers - books that no one uses!
