What was the last book you read? When was it?
What book are you reading right now?
The World Book Day was yesterday – March 3rd!
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 19th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 3rd March 2016 children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
So as children we are encouraged to read…
I certainly was when I was at primary, secondary school and even more or at college and University.
But what happens to this habit when we get into adulthood and enter the world of work?
A mentor of mine told me to dedicate 30 min each day to reading.
Why? Because “Readers are Leaders”. It helps our mind to expand, get new ideas. I love listening to audio books especially when I drive. I like using the otherwise boring time for something useful. I’m in the middle of reading the “Spiritual Ecomonics” by Eric Butterworth.
A few days ago I received a book called The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. It was recommended to me. I’m thrilled to see what I’m going to learn because the subtitle reads: The Seven Priciples that Fuel Success and Performance at Work.
Who wouldn’t like to be happy in life?
Who wouldn’t like to be successful?
