But I don't like to read...

From non reader to media specialist

“The thing I realize is, that it's not what you take, it's what you leave.” ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places

If you don't like to read, you are reading the wrong books..

How many of you don't enjoy reading? Most of us loved books when we were children. Can you still think of your favorite picture book? Maybe you remember reading it before bed or in a classroom. Do any of the books above bring back memories?


I didn't read my first book without an assignment until 9th grade, the teacher let us choose our own books. Yes, it was an assignment, but we had the flexibility to choose a book that we felt would be interesting. I choose Where Are the Children by Mary Higgins Clark. Since then, I haven't stopped reading.


I want to help everyone reconnect with their initial love for reading. I usually start by asking a few of the following questions.

What is your favorite TV show?

What do you like to do in your free time?

What is the last movie you saw that you enjoyed?


I'm going to post suggestions of books I've read and would love any suggestions you might have too.
