I always wondered when all those cookbooks out there were launches, released to the public. It sort of makes sense the middle of October would be the time, with all the holidays coming up it’s a great time to promote those meals that help us celebrate them. The only real issue for anyone writing a cookbook is that if you don’t finish it until October 13th you have to wait an entire year to launch it. Or maybe they mean launching the cookbook into space. Is there a rocket being sent into space today? They certainly need better food than what comes in those little tubes.
How to celebrate – Go cookbook shopping today. Start writing your own cookbook, you’ve got a year to finish it. Find your own recipe for success.
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.
