31 Days to a Better Reading Life

     I'm so glad you're here! I'm dedicating my October to helping you get to a better place in your reading life.

     You've heard all the reasons you should read - to be smarter, to decrease stress, to keep your imagination alive, to learn important skills, to go on adventures, to see things from others' perspectives, to expand your vocabulary, and, of course, to keep your brain from atrophying.

      Now it's time to do something about it!

     I love the Write 31 Days category I fall under this year: personal endeavors. Seeking to improve your reading life is certainly a worthy personal endeavor.
