Happy 2014, everyone! A brand new year, a fresh sheet of paper, a blank screen with awaiting cursor... however you like to look at it, a new year does offer up an enticing freshness and promise. So, to ease into this brand new year, I thought I'd start off with some links to interesting things I've been reading around the web:
- I couldn't agree more that reading for pleasure leads to greater success in life.
- I've been musing over whether technology is making book-reading a specialist activity and wondering why we don't do more about it.
- I've been thinking that there aren't enough book clubs (online or in real life), so start one now!
- I've been enchanted and delighted with this round up of the best children's, illustrated and picture books of 2013.
- Finally proof that reading literature is good for your brain!
