It's National #ReadABookDay

 National Read a Book Day is the celebratory 24 hours, set aside to remind us that books are treasure chests filled with the riches of inspiration, imagination and information.

It is suggested that we read anything that we love. It could be a book from childhood, a book that you have always been meaning to start, or perhaps a book that you have been needing an excuse to finish.

Let’s say you don’t want to “just sit and read” (gee, Annette, you say that like it’s a bad thing). It was suggested that you read to someone else!  Bonzer thought here!!  Visit a shut-in, head off to your child’s school, heck, corner the dog! Don’t have a pet? Read to your walls, look in the mirror and read to yourself OR head outside and read to Mother Nature (she’s been waiting for you to visit considering you’ve been so busy with that new job and all).

Golly -- doing that and didn't even know! Thanks for the alert -- I feel more like I participated, even if it was an accident!

(And thanks for your Gypsy visits - I'm way behind on comments; that not-great-internet thing again!)

Jeanie:
Well, I'm glad you were able to get some reading time in, even if you didn't know you were participating in a reading holiday.

You're welcome about the comments, and no worries about being behind on seeing to them... It happens to us all at some point, whether our internet access is good or not.

The really funny thing is, it actually fell on a day when I had hardly any time for reading because I had so many other things going on. Well, maybe next year I'll be more prepared...?
