Bring Reading Rainbow Back for Every Child, Everywhere.

I can still remember watching Reading Rainbow in my parent’s video store as a child. To this day, reading remains one of my #1 favorite activities, and it’s my greatest hope that children in current and future generations can grow up with the same fun, joyful show that has helped teach the wonders of literary adventure to so many, including myself.

Basically, if you don’t back this project, you’re a monster who hates kids and literacy. You don’t wanna be “that guy” do you? Well, DO YOU?!

Memorial Day Reading

In honor of Memorial Day, I started reading The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien yesterday afternoon. I’m already halfway through. It’s marvelous. Here’s a little taste.

"She had crossed to the other side. She was part of the land. She was wearing her culottes, her pink sweater, and a necklace of human tongues. She was dangerous. She was ready for the kill."

I am thankful to all of the men and women who have given their lives so that I might live freely, happily, and without fear of what wolves may be coming in the night. They’ve carried a heavy burden indeed.

When I finish this statistics class Ishmael will be the first of five books I power through. I can’t wait to dive back into literary enchantment!

This is a little vulgar for my taste, but the principal is dead on. I have this problem where I feel uncomfortable hanging out with people who don’t read or have an interest in reading. I just can’t wrap my brain around it!

You know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that in book stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor

I’m going to reblog this until it’s a cultural norm.

Lets do it

plus less chance of drugs being slipped into your book

Who doesn’t love the smell of old books?

#TBT to that time I stopped dating a guy because he told me at some point I would have to stop reading so many books if I really wanted to “experience” life.
