May is Get Caught Reading month, a nationwide campaign to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read.
Get Caught Reading is supported by the Association of American Publishers (AAP). Launched in 1999, “Get Caught Reading” is the brainchild of former Congresswoman Pat Schroeder, President and Chief Executive Officer of AAP, the industry association representing book publishers. She saw the opportunity to spread the word about the joys of reading through an industry-supported literacy campaign.
According to the Get Caught Reading website, “because of research indicating that early language experience actually stimulates a child’s brain to grow and that reading to children gives them a huge advantage when they start school, we hope to encourage people of all ages to enjoy books and magazines and to share that pleasure with the young children in their lives.”
I just finished The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe, a wonderful book about a life well lived–with books. And now I’m about halfway through Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn–the twisting thriller that seems to be on everyone’s must-read list. So, what you are reading? Reply to this post and let us know.
