I love books. I read for pleasure and education. Books entertain me and reduce my stress. When I read, I increase my brain power, strengthen my communication skills, and learn new information.
I fill my home with books and magazines that interest me. I browse through bookstores and newsstands. I look for recommendations from online communities, literary critics, and friends.
I carry reading material around with me. I bring paperbacks and e-readers with me when I go to the doctor’s office or take a vacation.
I visit my local library. I explore the collection for fiction and nonfiction titles. I try new authors and genres. I mark my calendar for upcoming events, like book discussions and author talks.
I find quiet spaces where I can settle down and enjoy my books. I design a reading nook at home in a window seat or a corner of my living room. I pick out a park bench or lie on a blanket in my backyard.
I designate times each day for reading. I wake up early or turn the TV off to enjoy a book before bed.
I set specific goals. I aim to read at least 50 pages each day or finish one book each month.
I share my love of books with others. I read to my children. I join book clubs. I take classes on Russian literature or graphic novels.
Today, I take time out to read a book. I stimulate my brain, expand my knowledge, and have fun.
