Reading is FUNdamental (and cool?)

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like reading is cool again. And while we’ve previously discussed how much reading is important to students (especially over breaks), I can’t help but notice how many more comics I’m seeing about books and reading, like this one (my favorite):

Hannah Hillam for BuzzFeed Comics

Then I took a listen to this recent NPR story about all the upcoming book adaptations for TV.  Can we be entering a book revival? After all, two of the most talked about TV shows right now are based on books – The Handmaid’s Tale and Game of Thrones.

And then, of course, there’s the popularity of book clubs…like this one you might have heard of…

So when PBS announced that they were getting in the game with an eight-part series on The Great American Read, we might officially be in the trending zone!

So, start reading.

You never know where your passion for reading can go:
