Get caught reading in May
May is ‘Get Caught Reading Month’ and this is an easy one to celebrate, simply dive into a great book and tell us what you’re reading!
Reading is a great way to not only keep the mind active but can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, which may of us may be feeling at this time.
We’re not suggesting that you delve into a Dickens marathon or dust-off War and Peace; but whether you’re an avid book worm or prefer to sit with a magazine, reading is a great workout for the brain! Perhaps this is the perfect time to rediscover your love of reading or even pick up a book for the first time in years. Fact, fiction or celebrity gossip, there is something for everyone. What’s your book recommendation? Visit this blog thread on our Facebook page, and share it in the comments section!
