World Book Day
Today is World Book Day, a celebration of reading that is a part of UNESCO (soon be followed by World Book Night on April 23, 2012). Hooray for reading! Whether physical books or e-reads, reading is the most frugal way I continue my education, plus the cheapest entertainment I know (I subscribe to both the Kindle Daily Deal and the NOOK Daily Find since I have both a Kindle and the NOOK Tablet, so I find new reading for very little cost). Paperback Swap is still a favorite place to find great books, and I cannot say enough about my wonderful local library.
I have a TBR mountain of physical books, plus loads on I-Books, Kindle, NOOK, and let's not forget Audible, LOL. My 2012 Reading list is already way too full, but I am enjoying the challenge of working thru mystery, fantasy, history, politics, self-help, current events--you name it. Outside of sports, childcare, horror and a few other genres, I read a bit of everything, and encourage others to do so as well.
Do you enjoy reading? What genres? Have you succumbed yet to e-reading? Do your children enjoy reading? I cannot imagine a life without the written word...
