National Book Lovers Day was recognized just a few days ago. An observance I celebrated on my personal and professional social media platforms, and offline by reading. I wasn’t always an avid reader. In fact, during my school days I used to feel like r.e.a.d was a 4-letter word, most likely due to the selections included in class curriculums, ya know, the “classics.”
Confession, I was once a member of five (5) book clubs simultaneously:
- Parris Island Spouses Club
- Celadon Book Club
- Waters Edge UMC Book Club
- MCX (Marine Corps Exchange) Book Club
- Susie L. McMahon’s Virtual Book Club
Is being a member of five book clubs too much?
It proved to be so during the COVID-19 portion of 2020. Seeking simplification during that time, I pared down to one >>>>
Susie L. McMahon’s Virtual Book Club.
Five years ago, I launched a Pinterest board on the Paper Chaser Biz LLC page, Five From The Hive where monthly tips, tidbits and buzzwords for success are shared. Click the link for 5 Ways to Read More Books.
In the spirit of Five From The Hive, Raven Reads shares The Top 5 Benefits of Reading Books:
- Reading makes you more empathetic.
- Reading keeps your brain healthy.
- Reading reduces stress.
- Reading helps you sleep better.
- Reading sets an example for kids.
Excited to announce and extend an invitation to the September meeting of Susie L. McMahon’s Virtual Book Club where I am honored to be co-featured with Dana Ridenour to talk about
