In the United States, October 20th is National Day on Writing. This day celebrates not only the talent of writing but encourages those who do write, to perform that task to the best of their ability.
In recognition of this day, I am making a suggestion; gift someone a book. This could be someone you know or even someone you have never met, nor may ever meet. As books come in many forms, this could be a physical book, an eBook or even an audio book. Keep in mind there are many who are sight challenged and a braille book would be a delightful gift to receive.
Why do I invite you to share in this manner? Books speak to the imagination, often they touch our hearts and can stir the soul. They teach us to cook, encourage us to think and understand us in ways those around us cannot.
Yes, I am a published author and it would my honor to have you gift any of the books I have written. However it matters more to me that you find at least one book, even if that book comes from the bargain bin at the local “everything for a buck” store, and present it to someone with joy and excitement. Believe that your gift will open a window to the world!
