I read in many ways. The last book I listened to was, Yes Please by Amy Poehler.  I love to listen to books when I drive. The next book for listening will be Bossypants by Tina Fey. It is in my Audible app, ready to cue up. My pile of books to read is tall and the one on top is Good Leaders Ask Great Questions by John Maxwell.  In my Kindle is the book Branding Yourself- How to Utilize Social Media to Invent or Reinvent Yourself Edition 2 by Erik Deckers and Kyle Lacy it is ready to go. I haven’t got a book for my nook yet. I want a book for fun so I think I will go with a recent recommendation, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.

The chance you will catch me reading is pretty good because as I started this blog, I read in many ways. May is Get Caught Reading month. I love this concept because it is about reminding us how fun it is to read. I love a book I can have fun with. We read for more than fun, we read to learn, to comprehend and function. Our typical student is literacy challenged. This is when reading isn’t easy or fun, hence, literacy challenged. To function on a day to day basis requires reading; think about your average day, how often are you reading? Take note.  The Literacy Center is for all adults who are literacy challenged and the chance that you know someone who has difficult reading is pretty good. That someone is hiding it from you by ordering the same thing you do at a restaurant, forgetting their glasses or changing the subject. What can you do to stop them from hiding? I’m not sure. But if you #CetCaughtReading it might be a way to start a conversation and say something like,

“A lot of people need help with reading and writing.”

or

“There is a program that helps people improve their reading and writing.”

or

“There is a program that helps parents help their children with their homework and that helps parents read better.”

 

Help us break the cycle of illiteracy and get caught reading. Contact us today to find out about the exciting things happening this summer at The Literacy Center.
