Why Our Future Depends on Libraries, Reading and Daydreaming by Neil Gaiman

I happened across an article on BrainPickings.org about reading and it makes so many valid points about why reading is important.  I won’t regurgitate what I read but I wanted to share the article because I think it’s worth sharing.  Ours is a book house.  We own books, we read them, we use the local library too.  I read every night before going to bed and at various points throughout the day.  I have always read to my kids before bedtime as part of their wind-down routine.  My son is now old enough to read most things himself and so I let him pick what he wants to read.  At the moment, it’s Pokemon or Minecraft manuals which is not necessarily what I would choose for him but the important thing is he enjoys reading them.  He is absorbing.  He is learning.  He is enjoying books.

Long live the art of reading!
