It seems serendipitous that our first post falls on the first day of the month that celebrates sharing stories. We are so excited to start this blog and share with you, the visitor, the things that we have read that have made an impact. And not always in a positive way! Not every book we read will be to our liking but that’s the nature of reading – it’s often what we bring to a story that determines what we’ll think of it.
We don’t just want this to be about us, though. We’d love to hear your views of things you’ve read, and it needn’t just be about books. Magazines, websites (blogs!), newspapers, anything that has made you think and talk. Just get in touch and tell us all about it.
Hopefully we will get some content up soon, as we have lots of books that we’ve read over the years. Bear with us while we sort through them and work out how to get things looking good on the site.
In the meantime, you might want to check out this article on the National Literacy Trust’s site Words for Life. The article is all about ways in which you can enjoy sharing stories as a family and not all of them mean burying your noses in books either. Hands up, it was written by me, Sam, as I am involved as a volunteer for the Trust but I hope this further goes to show our commitment to reading. It’s really one of our favourite things!
See you again soon.
Holly and Sam
