Go on, admit. You read for fun. We all do. It’s something to do on the bus ride, while you’re waiting on Mom/Dad or a thousand other things. We’re not talking about homework here. This is just sitting down and cracking open a book and immersing yourself in a good story. YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) is encouraging teens to read something out of this world with Teen Read Week from October 18-24. This year’s theme is “Read Beyond Reality @ your local library.”
Check out your local branch to see what’s planned for the week. Events range from a bookmark contest, a book review and drawing, “Weird Jeopardy” and more. There should be something for everyone. If that’s not your speed, just pick up a book and read something that you’ve never read before. Stretch yourself, have some fun!
And you can drop a comment below about the books you’ve read. It could be your favorite book of all time. Or one that REALLY sucked. Either way, you’ll be sharing your ideas with others and helping them to read for the fun of it.
See you at the library!
