Monday Musings: Read Across America Day

 Read Across America DayPart of my personal library with some really old books I inherited from my father.

Today on Emmet Street, we’re celebrating National Read Across America Day. This day was started back in 1997 by the National Education Association (NEA) to encourage children to read. It coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, one of my favorite authors.

To celebrate, I’m turning off the television, curling up under a warm blanket and immersing myself in the final book of the Divergent trilogy,  Allegiant. I can’t wait to find out how it ends! No spoilers!

Looking for your next read? We wax poetic about the magic of books quite often on Emmet Street. Check out some of our past posts for ideas:

Have you seen our Home Library Lust board on Pinterest? (Why not jump on over and follow us?) Here are some of our recent book-related pins:

  • Books in the ceiling – Just getting a book down from this library would be a great adventure!
  • Little Free Library – Give a book, take a book, spread the joy.
  • TV library – Looking to recycle your old boxy television? There are some great ideas here, including a TV library!
