A few days ago, Jacquelyn Mitchard wrote a piece about some "holidays we SHOULD have":
Read in Public Friday
"Let's call it....July 15. Everyone gets to pick out a beach, a park bench, a porch swing, a library, a window seat, or a car seat, and wear your colors.
Show that you read, that you love and believe in reading---whether it's with a hard cover book or some iteration of an electronic reader.
Kids won't get the day off from school for this, except in the state of Oregon. Those of us who work won't get a day off with pay.
(And, boy, would it ever be not a bad idea if we did.)
Whoever reads can never be a prisoner."
I like the way this writing dame thinks!
