Read for fun and wisdom


Dear Students 

Let us  celebrate World Literacy Day, today by being thankful that we are literate and can read and write.  Stories are what we think of, next. First, we listen to stories (at bedtime or any other time) recounted by parents, grandparents and sometimes, even teachers.

Next, after learning to read, we read stories for ourselves.

Then, we are hooked – or at least, I was. How about you? Do you love to read?

Do you like prose or poetry, fiction or non-fiction, illustrated or plain text? A reader’s world is full of Nowadays, you have even more choices – printed books from the library or epub on Kindle and other iPad software?

Read on your iPad

Before I entered the iPad era, I used to have five-six books on my bedside table, as I would read them all together (at different times). But I faced great problems packing when I travelled. Clothes, I could cut down on, but I needed books to read. Now, I carry innumerable books on Kindle, Goodreader, iBooks and numerous other Apps on my iPad!

I really never understood the hot debate between print books and digital ones. I would be willing to read books even if they were written on floors, ceilings, buses, teacups, towels – you name it!

Love to read!

In fact, I’m so addicted to reading, I cannot go to sleep without reading. Sometimes, however – often, actually – reading also keeps me from sleeping, as I read until 2.00 am or 3.00 am in the morning!

Sleep or read?

Today, I would like to share some reading links with you. You can read yourself, or ask someone (mom/dad/sister/brother/grandparent) to read aloud to you.

Each link has a selection of many kinds of stories. So, this should keep you busy for a long, long, time.
