How Can A Grandparent Help Their Grandchild Love Reading?

I have started a book The Demon Dentist by David Walliams. I am hoping to Facebook my great grandson once a week to discuss the book and the characters. He is nine years old and not very keen to read out of school. Do you have any tips for me and how to go about keeping him interested. We don’t live close but he seemed keen to try my idea. Any help would be gratefully received.
