READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY

In high school I had this t-shirt (which really isn’t surprising, I had lots of t-shirts, because I’m a total t-shirt-and-jeans person) that had the Cat in the Hat on it and for the life of me, I can’t remember what the damn thing said, but it said something about reading. We wore them for our school’s reading week, which coincided with the first week of March. Because of Read Across America Day.

I really wish I had a picture of the damn thing.

Like just about every other nerd on the planet, I enjoy a good read. I don’t care if I’m reading an article about urban farming in BUST magazine, a book about a girl in a boat in Michigan, or Samurai Champloo fanfiction on my phone (Fuugen 4eva), I tend to enjoy whatever I read, so long as I am reading for the hell of it. (Maybe one day I will tell you the story about how I was an English major and hated everything and everybody, because I couldn’t read just for the hell of it)

It is Read Across America Day, so I do plan on taking a couple minutes–just a few!–to read something. Before I focus on getting new books, I need to focus on finishing the few I have started. Likely, I will be reading Burial Rites because that’s what I’ve been carrying in my purse for the last week.

    Yep! It’s a week long event at my son’s school, so it gets celebrated with spirit week shenanigans and more Dr. Seuss books than you can shake a stick at. I don’t mind though- I love that Dr. Seuss’s birthday is celebrated in such a way that everyone gets involved in one way or another. There should be more days to encourage everyone to read.
