#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.

Today, I created a book recommendations list of YA books including characters that struggle to read or are illiterate and tell you about some organizations that you can support in the fight against illiteracy.

Pirate Treasure: 8 Swashbuckling Books for Gasparilla Pirate Fest

Ahoy, Matey! Every year about this time in Tampa, Florida, the city celebrates all things pirate with the Gasparilla Pirate Festival, a lavish city-wide reenactment of the 1904 invasion of Tampa Bay by the mythical pirate Jose Gaspar. The legend is fiction and the festival is mostly booze, parades and folks handing out plastic beads. We have a bookish alternative to the drunken mayhem. Avoid the looting and plundering by staying safely at home with a pint of grog and one of these pirate themed books.

September Cover Reveals

I tracked almost 40 cover reveals on my radar in September alone.  40!  I was so busy with work and blog work that I just couldn’t add my optional weekly post to the mix.  So I’ve compiled all the September covers in one place for you to make it easier to find anything you’ve missed and because it was impossible for me to compile all the pictures, I provided you my top picks/favorite covers this month, with links to all the rest.  Happy #TBR stacking!
