Future Plans

Reading is like taking a magic carpet ride to other lands and times.”

Many children change what they want to be, as they grow older. Some choose a fireman, police officer when they are young, this may change with age.

The point of all of this is the fact that there requirements and training for most jobs.

Some jobs require education past high school, and some may require advanced degrees. There is also a learning curve once you lad a job.

You be might reading textbooks, training manuals, job handbooks, and maybe even a management handbook that are related to your position in a company.

As a reader for over 60-years, there are more books than can be read in one lifetime on almost as many subjects.

If you are open to learning new things, pick a subject and look for books on the subjects that appeal to you, also check out ones that you may not like but would like to learn about that has nothing to do with your interests.

As you grow up, reader is the best teacher, if you want to be a writer.

If you choose to be a writer, please have a second source of income, because making a living as a writer is very difficult at best. There are more than 200,000 books written per year.

As soon as you start working, even a part-time job, think to the future when you are older and approaching retirement. You must have a nest egg to rely on for you to live on. Rely on yourself, not other people or the government.

Hold on to your dreams, but live in reality.

What books to read?

Choosing a book for reading is up to the person, some people like fantasy, others mystery, or books about animals of the world, books about plants. The choices are limitless.

There are books for young children to adults.

You can have something to talk about with your friends if they read; they might even read the same books you do. It is a good thing to have something in common with your friends, and can talk about it face-to-face.

If there is something that interests you, like cats or dogs, the ocean, insects, birds, or something else, a trip to the local library will be a journey into knowledge by finding books on the subject and reading them to learn more about what you enjoy.

Reading a book isn’t just for school, but an extension of things from school.

Reading before bed is a way to relax and sleep better because you will be tired and it will be easier to fall asleep.

What you were reading may also help you with reading and understanding your schoolwork better.

Practice in everything makes you better at it.

Plan a trip to the library when the weather is good and pick out some books to read. You will enjoy it.

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.

Do You Read Books?

Bradbury receiving the National Medal of Arts ...

Author Ray Bradburysaid, “You’ve got to love libraries. You’ve got to love books. You’ve got to love poetry. You’ve got to love everything about literature. Then, you can pick the one thing you love most and write about it.”

It’s not just about wanting to write, but about learning new things. Whatever subject you want to learn about, there are books that will help you learn.

It’s my personal philosophy to try and learn something new every day. I could live in a library or bookstore and be very happy. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I have read books by Isaac Asimov to Emil Zola. I have read books of poetry, novels, short stories, mysteries, myth, religion, philosophy, physiology, zoology, phytology, botany, mammals, reptiles, etymology, and more. This is because I like all types of reading and learning things.

By reading books, you can learn about other countries, cultures, space, and many other subjects that may be of interest to you. The most powerful item in my wallet is my library card, which allows me to borrow books and read about different times, places, and times.

I have helped in literacy programs, and feel that anyone who is able to read and write should help others learning English, or those who haven’t learned to read and write, so that a new and brighter world opens before their eyes.

It’s by reading and helping people to expand their abilities that we who help, gain as much as the ones we help.

I feel that everyone should be able to read and write in their native language, which in America is American English although America has no official language.

Congress tried many times to have English declared the official language congress has never passed a bill to make it so.

Do yourself a favor, go to the library and check out a book and read it from cover to cover, you might enjoy the journey it takes you on. Remember this quote from Ray Bradbury, “I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can’t really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, ‘If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we’ll talk.’ All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don’t want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.”

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.

Do Your Parents Read to You?

When you were a small child, or are too small to read for yourself, do your parents read to you?

Reading is a great pastime that should be pursued anytime you have free time. Reading books whether physical or electronic can take you on journeys into the unknown; learn about places, people, things, and even things that could be in our future.

Reading will also help you build a vocabulary; learn spelling, and even writing better.

Books are our past and our future. Reading can also be our teachers of many new and wonderful ideas.

Reading helps build character and a sense of one’s self and their relation to the world at large.

Reading helps with learning and asking questions. Learning should be a lifelong pursuit. It is fun learning new things.

Learning new things is why there is homework to do from school. Learning makes you a more rounded person than just playing video games or spending time on chat sites.

Reading books helps with being creative in other parts of your life and helping in the way you approach problems.

Sit down and read a book.

A Recommendation for a Child Safe Site

ABC Mouse.Com is a child save site with no pop-ups, no advertising, or external links.

This site is for children from Preschool through Kindergarten.

It is a pay site, but there are activities and learning possibilities for young children.

There is reading, tutorials, puzzles, coloring, math, science, and more available for children.

I don’t recommend many sites, but this is one that may be worth looking into for your young children.

There are even ways for your child to learn while playing games and completing puzzles.

I suggest you check out the site and see for yourself if ABC Mouse.Com is a worthwhile site for your child.
