National Read A Book Day 2016


National Read A Book Day is observed annually on September 6th. On August 9th, we all celebrated National Book Lovers Day. While these bookish days may seem similar, National Read a Book Day invites us ALL to grab a book we might enjoy and spend the day reading.  

Don’t keep it to yourself. Share the experience! Read aloud either to children or to grandparents. Read to your pets or to your stuffed animals and plants.  

Reading improves memory and concentration as well as reduces stress. Older adults who spend time reading show a slower cognitive decline and tend to participate in more mentally stimulating activities over their lifetime. Books are an inexpensive entertainment, education and time machine, too!

HOW TO OBSERVE

Sit back, relax and read a book. Use #ReadABookDay to post on social media.

*********************************

I have to study a little bit for my lecture exam on Friday but other than that I will be spending a majority of my day reading! What is everyone doing today? Reading? It’s ok if you can’t read all day. Just read as much as you can and share your pictures! You can follow me on Instagram (adventuresbetweenpages) and see my reading journey!
