Book lists and scheduling are not the end of the road to the crisis of no-reading! If a child sees his or her parents not going near a book, that child certainly cannot be expected to pick up a book on his or her own. Parents need to establish a reading habit themselves because children pick up good (and bad) habits from their parents.
Of course, interest is a matter of concern as well. Your disinterest might work to deter the child from the books. A good practice here is to mix and match varieties of stories, including topics you like. Reading and creating conversation about a book is a key skill which you can easily impart to your child.
Finally, if you are worried that reading 'outside' material can hamper with your child's studies, think for once if too much studying will guarantee a fool-proof future for him or her. Fiction and non-fiction books unrelated to studies, in moderation, can only make way for more possibilities.
