I just read this article - http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/lifestyle...-reading-month and apparently, National Reading Month pala itong November DepEd is trying to promote reading to today's youth. I am all for encouraging kids to read more especially in this day and age where people opt for the internet or TV for leisure activity and even for sources of info. Wala namang masama sa pagsusurf ng net or manood ng TV kaya lang, nakakaligtaan na talaga ang pagbabasa ng aklat. I was a bookworm as a kid and I learned to be a better writer and speaker because of reading. New words, ideas, and pieces of information are all available at the tips of your fingertips. Sure, makikita mo rin yun online o sa TV screens pero iba talaga ang experience ng pagbabasa. Would you guys agree? I grew up in the 90s so di pa ganun ka-advance ang technology dati - wala pang Facebook at di pa ganung ka-popular ang pag gamit ng internet. Were any of you bookworms din as kids?
Tyaka what do you guys plan to do in celebration of National Reading Month? Nakita ko lang tong tanong sa Facebook fan page ng Rex Book Store - http://www.facebook.com/RexBookStore
