It’s a good day…for reading

Holy flip…did you know?
It’s National Reading Day! Hip, hip, hooray. Well, for me, that’s about every day if I can, and I consider myself very fortunate to have that privilege.

Anyway, the national reading day site is dedicated to getting kids into reading. I’ve personally recommended wegivebooks.org for this task. It has books for various ages, and all one needs is an internet connection. And, for every book you read, the site GIVES free books (real books) to kids in need.

So, why are we just sitting around here? It’s story time!

Here’s a story about a man and a dream (whom we just celebrated on a holiday this month):

And, here’s a classic tale that many people can relate to these days, thanks to a certain “Polar Vortex”:

Yeah, I know…as good a book as that is, I’m adding one more, something I found one day and turned out to be a really cute read…

(note: this last one’s  available through Amazon.com; no get/give points, but if you click, you do support my reading fund *please, please, puppy-dog eyes*)

Oh, and in case you didn’t click on the wegivebooks link yet, go explore it more sometime (after reading my site, of course). They’re having a contest involving reading and Wrestlemania at the moment, encouraging kids to read all they can.

Happy reading, y’all!
