Spreading the Loveof Reading!
I have the honor of being one chosen in my state to do just this. give books away for free! I want to share this with you all because you may not be aware of this wonderful way of advocating reading. One of the aspects of this project is you choose who you are going to give the books away to.
I chose a demographic & area of my small town to distribute the books which is is our homeless teenager population
and the place for my giveaway is where they gather to socialize and trade important street navigation tips (how to live homeless as a teen)
My thoughts are this is group that because of personal circumstances and economics these children are missing out on a necessity no one can afford. Reading. It is not a luxury.
On April 23rd I will be distributing the books to teens, asking them only to pay it forward by sharing their book when finished. And asking the same request to follow the book.
I am asking you my beautiful pe3ople is only that you inform yourself about this fine program and spread the word. The link is below, take a few minutes or more and find out how easy it is to participate. Because you are a blogger here at WordPress
I know you are a lover of words, I challenge each of us to spread that love of reading words however possible.
I’d love more creative ideas myself on how to accomplish this, this program is a wonderful example. Reading is a gift we give ourselves,this is true. I love the idea promoting the activity of reading in any way I can. The escape and the knowledge that books give us is priceless. I would like everyone to know the freedom that comes with escaping to a different time, a different land, or a different universe. Its endless.
That’s the magic of reading.
Thank you so much for your time and attention
