Take your Child to a Bookstore Day


I really like the initiative Take your Child to a Bookstore Day. It is never too early to venture into the world of books. As a young girl I absolutely loved the Nancy Drew books, then I discovered Agatha Christie and was forever in love with the mystery genre.

“Bookstores hold a place in the hearts and times of our community. They are places to discover an author, a story, a life. Nothing affords the conversation and interaction among books and book lovers that a bookstore does. In the future, whether you download your story or pluck a volume off a shelf, a bookstore will be able to accommodate. But in order for bookstores to flourish and thrive, we must expose future generations to the unique pleasures they offer. On December 4th, 2010, take the child in your life to a bookstore. Watch his face light up as you give him free access, not just to a new book, but to tomorrow.”
