Hey guys! Can you believe April is almost over? Crazy to think about right? I just wanted to post a little something about books to pick up your day and mine.
Books are an escape, something we can go to in times of need. Whenever I sit down to read, I’m able to take a deep breath and truly breathe. I love stories that make me cry, laugh, gasp, scream and love all at the same time. So I encourage you: for May, make a goal for yourself just to sit down and read once a day. Doesn’t matter what, for how long, or anything like that, just sit down and read. A lot of terrible stuff is going on in the world right now (if you look at the news, it’s super easy to get depressed) so I encourage you to escape in a book. Forget about all your problems and forget about the world for 10 minutes. I can promise you that you will so much more relaxed (unless you read a Stephen King book 😝) and it will really pick your day up.
Remember these words of wisdom for this week and face whatever comes your way with a book. Now, I will leave y’all with a poem I absolutely love. I will talk to everyone soon (because is almost May 1st!!) and have a great rest of your week!
-your fellow book lover
I Opened a Book
by Julia Donaldson
I opened a book and in I strode,
now no one can find me.
I left my chair, my house, my road,
my town and my world behind me.
I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I fought with a dragon, dined with a king,
and dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends,
I’ve shared their tears and laughter.
And followed the road with its bumps and bends
to the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came
the cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
but I have a book inside me.
Happy reading!!! ❤️📚
