May is Get Caught Reading Month!


May is “Get Caught Reading” month, Yay! I am so embracing this one because I just love, love, love reading! Right now I have 3 books started, they are all different genres and I am going to finish them all. That just may sound rather odd, but it’s another quirky side of me, (I have many) but they all are so needing to be read! Like I said, I will get to them all…. I always do.

This Get Caught Reading Month was launched in 1999, as a nationwide campaign by the AAP (Association of American Publishers). It has now stretched all over the world and that is just so exciting! The program is also now supported by schools, libraries and booksellers. Lots of activities and events are happening and all geared toward the promotion of literacy, Yay! All such good and wonderful things

I must say. Autumn and I I have a very deep love for books because growing up at our house we started reading very early! Dad and Mom, both lovers of the written word encouraged us all to always get caught reading. It was such a blessing, and besides listening to music we all are to this day avid readers. TV was honestly not big at our house although there were a couple TV’s in residence. The stereos and books outnumbered the TV’s I must admit! It all just seemed to pale in comparison to reading and music and that has stuck with me, Autumn is the same of course…Did anyone doubt it?

How many of you are going to be caught reading this month? Come on, we all need to be on board!  I have a good feeling most of you kind readers will be. Just think of all the wonderful blogs we all read everyday from our fellow bloggers… That sure counts, too! The writing and reading go hand in hand of course, Autumn and I both started writing at age thirteen. I was thinking about that, too and I wanted to ask all of you how old were you when you started writing. Anybody who wants to, please do share! Any input is also so greatly appreciated and I sincerely mean that. So, that’s it from me for today and I do hope you all will get caught reading! 🙂 🙂

  1. Wonderful post, Gabby, and I was around 16 when I started writing; before that I was singing! As to reading books, I love them, but am finding it hard to keep up with reading blogs, much less books! How do you do it? I have so many emails and if you have the secret formula for staying caught up, please send it my way! 🙂 xo

    • Thank you Lauren and it makes me happy you liked the post. You were pretty young when you started writing, too and I always smile about you and your singing. You would have been quite famous, I know it! 🙂 I had to laugh about my secret for getting caught up with reading blogs and also having time to read. Well, sorry no secret to share…I read before I fall asleep and listen to music. I really do mulit-task over the place, but I think it’s because I’m alone. You have the family to look after and all, too is my other thought! 🙂 xo

      • Family does get in the way of blogging, don’t they? Just kidding! 🙂 Well, I work each day, too, and have the dog now to take care of and exercise, so blogging has it’s specified moments. But, I think we can all just do the best we can, right? I hope you know that if I’m absent, I’ll be your way soon! xo 🙂

        • I know you were kidding about the family getting in the way of blogging Lauren! 🙂 Work does take up time for us, but you have Copper the new doggie addition, too. I do think you’re right, we just do the best we can each day. Both Autumn and I know if you’re absent you will catch up with us Lauren, never worry about it! 🙂 xo
