I decided to create a blog.
Do you know why?
Because I love to read.
But the sad thing is is that many people in the world don’t like to read and that is sad for a bookworm like me to hear. Don’t ask me why (because personally I do not know myself) but I am kind of on a mission. A mission to get more people reading. And for some reason, there is one thing I want to do (though it might take me a while to do it.) I want to buy books and send them to a place where they do not have any. Or donate to an old library to spruce of their collection. I want to send the gift of literature. I want to spread the word. The word that is on paper. I want to change how I see books too. When I was younger I sometimes would see a book and toss it up like it was just a piece of paper and sometimes I still do that. But books are a precious thing. Many people cannot read or write and many people (even if they can read) do not have the availability of getting to a library. My library (fortunately) is about 2 miles away from me, so I can walk or bike there (though my mom and dad won’t let me). And I do not know anyone who would not want to go to my library. It is like a second family and I am not talking just about the books, I am talking about the people there. Whenever I go to a library I get a feeling inside. I do not know how to describe it. I guess you could say it is like getting the best thing in the world. Our library has a lot of book but not as much as some, but the librarians will order a books for you if you need it. If another library does not have it they will buy it and get it added to the libraries list of book.
I stated this blog because I wanted to be a blogger and I wanted to share some books with people who are fortunate enough to have a computer. Fortunate enough to be able to read. And I just hope that this blog gets spread around and keeps going so that everyone will not only see the books that are being reviewed, but I hope to inspire young readers. And my mom (Guest Blogger….M.O.M, My Own Mother) once in a while does posts.
I hope that books, paper books will not dies out because of electronics. There is a difference between reading a book on a screen and reading it off paper. When you actually hold the book you get to feel the pages. Feel the book and become one with the words. On a screen, you just see the words and read it and then….POOF. It is gone just like that. You can get a book on an electronic very fast but a book in a library you have to find it. You have to look for the book and find the author and call number. You might need the librarian. I just hope that this blog inspires young people to read. And maybe to become be a writer themselves.
