August 9th Book Lover’s Day

You either love them, or hate them. Personally, I love them! Books can take you places you might otherwise never go. You can visit other countries, other eras and other planets. You can be a part of a team that explores the Arctic, sail the seven seas, soar above the clouds, or solve mysteries like the greatest detectives of all time. Or you might even discover how the Evergreen Tree became the Christmas Tree (a plug to read my “Why The Evergreen’s Stay Green”, available on Amazon!) Books can keep you company, teach you things and give you a laugh. Once you’ve turned the first page you can never go back!

How to celebrate – Read a book today (or at least start one). Go on an adventure without leaving your living room. Write your own book.

September 6th National Read A Book Day

I am a book geek, yes I admit it. I love books. They are entertaining and educational and they are great for keeping papers still on your desk as well as a temporary fix for broken table legs. They don’t require electricity (Unless of course it’s dark out), they don’t require another person (Unless you are reading to them) and they can show us the world, both past and present.

Good writers can take us to places we’ve never been before, bad writers can take us to places we never want to go! (Good writers can take us there as well!) There are novels, poems, comic books, manuals, articles, short stories, the Bible, plays, scripts, even bubble gum wrappers to read.

Kids need to read, adults should read. (Set an example for the kids) Adults reading to kids, kids reading to Seniors. Even dogs like to be read to. And if you have ever red a book that is hard to put down you can feel that sense of accomplishment by finishing a chapter before falling asleep at night.

There are millions of books on every subject you can imagine. They come in every language, even some we have not figured out yet! Even the pictures painted on cave walls tell a story that can be read. In fact, many picture books tell us where we came from and even maybe where we are going.

And now for a shameless plug on my book! (Or rather short story.) It can be read in less than an hour and I believe most would enjoy it. It is available only on e-books, Kindle, Amazon or your favorite e-book provider. It is a Christmas story, just right for the upcoming season and written for all ages. It’s 99 cents (Cheap by any means) and I hope you will give it a read. Thank you in advance.

How to celebrate – Read a book today! Write a book today. Use a book to stand on to reach that shelf you haven’t been able to reach.
