It’s my birthday! If you want to help me celebrate, please consider doing my Commitment to Literacy.
This year’s Commitment to Literacy’s theme is One Book. I‘m inviting everyone to think about: What one book do you think everyone should read- and why? Or, what one book has influenced your life- and how?
Go to your library or bookstore and take a picture of yourself with the book. Send your response to the question(s) and your picture to earldizon [at] gmail.com. For each one I receive, I will donate a book to The Children’s Book Bank.
I will post these entries on this blog throughout the year.
This week, I posted:
–Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday– Read reviews for the following:
–Celebrate This Week: This week I’m celebrating happiness.
It was a slow reading week since I’ve been on vacation but I did read the graphic novel adaptation of Delivering Happiness by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh. I highly enjoyed the book and this format/edition presents the journey and the lessons in a very condensed way. But, it was still an entertaining read. Read the actual book, though!
*= It was OK
**= Liked it
****= Highly Recommended
My vacation book has been John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath which I hope to finish before attending a Classic Literature Book Club in May! Fun Fact: This year marks the 75th anniversary of the book!
Have a great reading week!
Oh, one thing I’ve been wanting to do is to host a Book Giveaway so please stay tuned for that later this week! It’s my One Book I talked about regarding my Commitment to Literacy!
