March is Reading Month!

Reading, which could only occur if there were writing, is believed to have begun in 3200 BC.  There is debate as to whether it started in China, Mesopotamia or Mexico, but thank goodness it did. Reading enables and fulfills us in so many ways when considering IMG_3500instruction, information and enjoyment. The platforms that have been created to support and share writing range from cave walls and scrolls to the internet and tablets. Can you imagine a civilized world without the written word? Without books, emails, texts, newspapers (well, that medium may be all but extinct), love notes, detention notices, parking tickets, billboards, doctor’s reports, assembly instructions, etc., our world would be something less than civilized.

 

So, the next time you are reading something, which more times than not is benefiting you, be thankful and celebrate – March is reading month!
