This is the time of year, you think about a vacation trip, or going to camp for the summer.

How about taking a book with you to read when you have a few minutes free to yourself or before going to sleep.

  • Reading is fun
  • Reading will help you in school
  • Reading is entertaining
  • Reading is a good way to pass time
  • Reading is a good way for you to learn about what interests you
  • Reading will help you understand what you read better
  • Reading can help you grow your vocabulary
  • Reading can help you with your writing
  • Reading can help you retain what you read better
  • Reading can help build character

Librarians will help you find books on subjects that interest you and are age appropriate for the age of the reader. This means that the librarian will help you pick a book on a subject that younger readers and their parents will be comfortable with you reading and won’t be too many words younger readers won’t understand.

Librarians can be your best friend helping you with books and subjects that interest readers of all ages. As you get older, they can help you learn how to find books for yourself.

You may need to write projects for school, as you get older, the library and the books inside are great for these reports on your own or with the librarians help finding the right book or books you need.

As a person in his 60s is still an avid reader, writer and book reviewer.

Pick up a book and read it, ask your parents to take you to the library, talk with the librarian and find a book on a subject that interests you.

Summer Break

I hereby confess: i'm a bookaholic

Summer break is on the horizon. Do you have vacation plans?

No matter what kind of vacation plans you and your family have, are you planning to do any reading? You should think about taking a book with you if you and your family go on a trip somewhere. Your parents could even buy you a book when you reach your vacation destination.

Why read? You can’t visit places twenty-four hours a day. You could take some time to read before going to sleep.

Reading books helps prepare you for school. Reading helps you with spelling, reading, and comprehension for your classes in school. Your parents should help you with this.

When I was younger, I would read any book I could get my hands on. Today I write reviews about books I read, and have fun doing it. I get to read all kinds of newly published books free, and afterwards with the authors’ permission donate them to my local library. How much fun is that? My local library doesn’t have to pay for books that people can borrow.

There are different types of books such as business, fiction, science fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, autobiographies, and memoirs. I have even written reviews of books for children.

You might not believe it now, but reading helps to build personal character, vocabulary, and knowledge of many subjects.

Are you interested in something specific? Why not find a book about what you are interested in and learn more about it. Many different subjects have books written about it. Reading can help with everything from animals to zoology.

I hope that your parents encourage you to read.
