Happy National Read Across America Day!

Saturday, March 2, 2013

There are many activities planned for National Read Across America Day. Check your local book stores and libraries for fun reading events!  Today would be a great day to start or join a book club.  My local book club is currently reading:

Are you doing anything special for National Read Across America Day?

Until next time...

  1. If I had my little Connor near I would love taking him to the library for story telling. I haven't seen this book so matbe you'll to review it for us. Since the MPT series Downton Abbey is finished I picked up the book Lady Almina and The real Downton Abbey. Good weather to cozy up and read this book this weekend.
    Enjoy your Saturday.

  2. Yesterday, I gave a book talk and volunteered at a nearby alternative school we've collaborated with. I don't think we celebrated this much when I was in school. But I remember my sister making the Seuss hats.

  3. Yes, we are going to the library and check out several books. Todd and I plan to spend a very relaxing day reading in a hotel suite.

  4. i'm so enjoying the idea of reading

  5. I am planning on reading one of the books I just picked up at the library. :)

  6. Oh this day does bring back fond memories of making green eggs and ham for my daughter's first grade class (that teacher was awesome and being her room mother was no small feat!) Lorna Landvik?!? Her book Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons was one of my first forays back into reading after becoming a mommy!

  7. My kids got to dress up in the their jammies, ate green eggs and ham and had a read-in!
