This Week’s Spotlight and Project-Inspiration Theme: National Read a Book Day
This week’s focus is National Read a Book Day!
September 6th is National Read a Book Day and this week’s theme. The day focuses on everyone finding time to sit down, relax, and read a good book all within twenty-four hours. It is a time to focus on yourself and to fall back in love with your favorite book. A study found that the average person in the United States reads around twelve books a year. This number was found to be heavily increased by avid book readers, so the average person (excluding those heavy readers) read only four books a year!
To encourage and celebrate this day with others, when you are reading your book, use the hashtag #readabookday. You can post what you are reading and share your thoughts on the book. Using the hashtag is a great way to stay motivated and connect with other readers, making the day even more enjoyable.
To get inspiration on what you might want to read, check out this website that has many great book recommendations for beginner coders. As you are practicing your coding skills this week, could you try creating a Scratch project to help someone decide on what book to read next? Whatever you create, don't forget to share it with us!
