What a lovely idea and theme for one of my favourite months. 😀 The weather turns sunny and warm, perfect for reading outside and get caught with your hands on a book. 😀

Get Caught Reading Month began in 1999 as a way to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read for pleasure, whether it is the classics, chick-lit, the latest thriller, or just your favourite magazine. Although I’d still go for a book but if you have little time, a nice magazine would do as well (just please, no yellow pages gossip magazines).

Exposure to language at a young age has been scientifically proven to stimulate brain growth in children, and children who have regularly been read to have a large advantage over their peers by the time they start school. Supporting your children and nurturing a reading habit yourself helps as well.

So, now go and find a book of your choice and just leisurely read it when you have time.
