March 2nd is Read Across America Day.
Read Across America falls on the beloved Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Who doesn’t love Dr. Seuss? I can still remember reading stories such as Red Fish Blue Fish and The Cat in the Hat. Read Across America is a way to get people, especially kids, excited to read.
Although aimed at children, I believe reading is a great activity for all ages. Reading is a great escape from daily life and can help spur your creativity. It can also show you a new point of view or learn about something you may not normally learn about.
If you are a regular reader of my blog you know how much I love to read. Currently, I am reading two books. One is a book for my photography business. I am learning about copyright, which is extremely valuable. I am also reading Mystic River by Dennis Lehane. I loved Shutter Island and wanted to read more of his work. I love books that I can’t predict. They keep me on my toes.
I love just about every genre and have several favorite authors. My top five authors are:
- Dean Koontz
- Jodi Picoult
- Jennifer Weiner
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
- Chuck Palahniuk
See? All over the place!
