Made as an ad by Duncan Macleod for the New Zealand Book Council, I find this to be a really powerful way to drive home the point that no two people read the same book!
The Library Staff in both the GFL and FAL are passionate in their belief about the value of reading!
Without a doubt, reading has a positive impact on our ability to write.
The more you read ….. The more you will be able to write!
Reading feeds into our ability to learn how to arrange words in sentences to more clearly express what we are thinking. If you doubt that – stop and look at this short video.
Pick up a book today and read ….. read ….. and read some more!!
We think this video is so hilarious, we wanted to share it with you!
But don’t get us wrong! We are NOT encouraging anyone to start a fight in either the FAL or the GFL!!!
If you’re a Book Person – tell the world!
Promoted by RIF (Reading is Fundamental) and Library of Congress, the Book People Unite website tells us what we already know: Books open new worlds and unlock new doors….. Declare your belief in the transformative power of books by encouraging friends to join the movement!
Tell everyone you know to read, read, and read some more!
