Who reads anymore?

So, who does read? You might say, quite a few people; and then again, not as many as should be reading.
School aged children fall into the latter category. Yes they may  read school issued books (or fake read) and this to pass an exam.
We have to assume that there are many reasons why reading has taken a back seat to movies, TV, video games, texting - need I go on? The immediacy of knowledge or connection to text requires focus.  forwarded by an avid reader

The Five People You Meet in Heaven - Mitch Albom

Unlike FĂ©lix Leclerc's  L'Auberge des morts subites, Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven is a refreshing look at the afterlife. After all, most of us suspect that there must be something more after we leave our earthly life.

Summer Bliss take 2

Summertime and the going is great!

The time of year teachers and their families anticipate with eager and open arms. A time to rejuvenate and look forward to lazy days. A time to look forward to that lounge chair and a great book to read – non issued school book.

Summer Bliss

The lawn chair and sangria beckon
Books pens post-its hilighters

all to the ready
my summer is in full swing

Countdown

Time is fleeting - now that's a cliche if I ever wrote one.
The next few days will also mark the last few days before I lose control of my own free time. Work begins. I could have used a better word - perhaps fun or perhaps opportunity knocks. However the sun is out and I'm anticipating that I'll be inside!
