#ReadABookDay Reading List

It’s not coincidence that #ReadABook Day falls this month.  UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) has declared September National Literacy Month and, with it, come many days dedicated to the promotion of reading. In addition to today, September 8th marks International Literacy Day.  The theme for the  conference, held in France this year, is “Literacy in the Digital World.”   The goal is to actively mobilize the international community and to promote literacy as an instrument to empower individuals, communities and societies.

While researching for this article, I was surprised to learn that over 775 million adults lack minimum literacy skills.  The statistic is that one in five adults are illiterate and two-thirds of those are women.  To bring awareness to this issue and to advocate for reading and literacy, UNESCO began National Literacy Month in 1946.

2016 Cliff Notes: Book Series In Progress

We took one look at this Epic Reads infographic and thought to ourselves: we need to get our reading organized in 2016.  We operate in the conundrum that TBR absolutely ridiculous, our bookshelves full and we never know what to read next.  As we stated earlier, 2015 became the Year of Unfinished Trilogies, where we refused to skip books that were mid-series and really began embracing them.  We fell in love with so many new characters and included many mid-series books on our Best of 2015 list.  So, what follows are in-progress book series that we’re excited to see continue and/or conclude in 2016.
