World Book Night 2014!
Stories are my life: I teach them, I write them, I read them, I sing them, I act them out, I talk about them, think about them. I have loved stories ever since I can remember. I used to drag my grandparents and all their neighbors into the front yard during my summer visits so I could perform original plays on the front porch. My friends were cast as supporting characters. The flowerbed became a jungle or a cave or some other dangerous world (sorry about that, Grandmother!). I read to relax, to escape, to learn, to connect, to dream…I read because I love it.
I know not everyone loves reading, but I really believe it’s because you just haven’t found the right book, yet. Not every book or every genre is for everybody. But there ARE books that you’ll love! So today, on World Book Night, I challenge you to give reading another try, if you’re one of those who doesn’t love reading. And if you’re like me – keep it up! Share your favorite stories here. I love getting recommendations!
My publisher, TNZ Fiction, has lots of great books: Young Adult, Suspense, Science Fiction, Romance, Historical… So celebrate World Reading Night by picking up a book – something new, an old favorite, anything. Because, in the words of my favorite author, “If a book is well-written, I always find it too short.” – Jane Austen
