What if we all read #SixtyBooks a year?
Every single one of us.
Students. Teachers. Parents.
What if we carved out time in each day and set it aside for reading? What if we read a few pages whenever we got the chance? What if we read books recommended to us by others in order to expand the story we know about the world? What if we read a variety of authors, books from every country, books representing many experiences and perspectives?
What if we spent more time talking with one another about what we’ve read, and what we’ve learned from what we’ve read?
Imagine a world in which every one of us reads #SixtyBooks a year.
They can be books we want to read for fun or books we read for information, required reading, suggested reading, shared reading, books read to us, books we read to other people, books we’ve read once (or many times) before, any book at all.
Now, imagine the conversations we would have with one another.
Imagine the topics we might discuss.
Imagine the levels of understanding and empathy we would reach.
This is what #SixtyBooks is all about.
#SixtyBooks is more than a reading challenge or a reading goal, because it is actually the result of what happens when we make reading a priority.
It’s not about the number of books that we read; it’s about what we learn and share because of the books we read.
It’s about who we become as a result of what we learn and share.
#SixtyBooks is a reading movement.
It’s a simple pledge that we can all make by stating:
“I will make reading a regular part of my daily routine.”
Please visit the #SixtyBooks website to find out more, take the pledge, and join this reading movement.
