Young Readers Day is celebrated on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. It was co-founded in 1989 by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. On this day, Grade Schools around the country take advantage of this day to promote the importance of reading. Some people refer to this as a "National" holiday but there is no record of a presidential proclamation or act of congress. Either way, it is nice to celebrate a "holiday" that is about enriching our minds instead of breaking our wallets:).
In honor of Young Readers Day (and readers of all ages), here are two books that are worth taking a gander at:
My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love Story by Jaime Lee Curtis
Unbearable Lightness by Portia De Rossi
(I am sure you have heard all about this book but EVERY woman of any age needs to read it)
If you have never read the Hannah Swensen mysteries, you MUST! This is an awesome series and each book comes filled with yummy recipes!
