It’s official. The 100 book reading challenge for 2016 folks. You gamed? What do you say? You in? I’m in like flynn baby.
These days there are so many things competing for our eyeballs. Your superfreak android phone. The ever seductive iPhone 6. The Ipad sucking the life juice out of your retinas. Laptops galore. Tablets. Sports. Netflix, hulu, Sling, Amazon video, Youtube, video games, and television. When does it ever end?
We are now living in the digital age like it or not. The age of information is right at your fingertips. Literally. Mobile devices have become the new “crack” of the century. We’re so addicted to it and we don’t even realize it. Sad thing about it is, we only have one set of eyes. They can only be in one place at a time. Sometimes I wish I had an extra set, but I guess two will have to do.
What about reading? What ever happened to books? Do kids read anymore? Never underestimate the power of a good book, is what I always say. Kids need to read. Constantly. It’ll build their literary brains and develop their capacity as a human being. I did not grow up reading books. Unless you include the Incredible Hulk. Even that was sparingly.
Best selling author K.M. Weiland has initiated an awesome challenge. Read 100 books in a year. Can you do it? But a better a question is will you do it. Even incite others to join the challenge. To challenge themselves. If you’d like to participate or would like more information follow the link below:
