Did you know that today is Read Across America Day?  

“National Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2nd, which is also the birthday of American author Dr. Seuss. This is a day dedicated to encouraging children and young people to read, and motivating parents and teachers to help them do so. The day was created and is hosted annually by the National Education Association.”

I was sitting in a waiting area one day and I was reading “Better Homes & Garden” magazine. I usually end up reading this magazine either in the libraries or waiting areas.  There was an article that said: “March 2, is read across America Day. Diving into a book can reduce your stress levels by 68 percent. Reading regularly has also been shown to help sharpen your mind, fend off dementia, and foster empathy.”

Now, I love Better Homes & Garden, but this is my favorite magazine that I always have a subscription for!!!
