Hi everyone! Have you noticed all the rain we have been getting lately? Lots of people enjoy reading when it rains including me. I thought I might encourage you to cozy up with a good book. With the rain and chilly fall weather, this is the perfect time of year to pour a cup of warm hot chocolate, grab a fuzzy blanket, and snuggle in with great book. The amazing thing about books is that, when they are good, they can make you feel like you are part of the story. A good book has the power to suck you in and make you forget your surroundings. If you are feeling down or overwhelmed, reading can also help relax your mind and body.
In addition to reading for fun, my brother and I are participating in the Book-It program. If you read for a certain amount of time everyday, you can earn your own pizza from Pizza Hut. I read for an hour each day and Logan reads for a half hour. We really enjoy reading and cannot wait to enjoy our pizzas! Did you participate in this program when you were a kid? In addition to reading on our own, our mom reads to us each night before bed. Reading at bedtime or being read to is very calming and a wonderful way to end the day.
I hope you find the time and have been inspired to pick up a good book and read. Until next time, you know where to find me…nose deep in a book!
