I love to read. This may be a shock, I realize, as I write for a book blog. And I’m willing to bet, dear reader, that you’re here because you like to read too. Clever logic, no?
Every year there are even more great books, in every genre, as writers keep doing that thing they do. And in the USA, today is National Read Across America Day, in honor of that icon of early childhood literacy, Dr. Seuss. But here at the Bookworms, we’re making this a worldwide event because we are an international blog thanks to our fabulous founder, Danny, and our many international followers!
So in honor of Dr. Seuss, the importance of literacy in general and, dare I say, for the benefit of all humankind, take a few moments out of your day today and read. Read for yourself, read to a child, recommend a great book to a friend. When we read we become better people, if for no other reason than we have listened to a new voice.
And don’t forget to leave us a comment and tell us how YOU will be celebrating today. What book will you be reading? Who will you be reading to? What’s you’re favorite quote about reading? And while you’re at it, take a picture of yourself reading and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can be part of our parade of literate hotties!
As an incentive, here’s a picture of me, in all my early morning glory, with the book I’m reading now, in the room we affectionately refer to as the library.
I’ll be doing a recap tonight, so I’ll see you all then.
