Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill upits empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors.
Joseph Addison

Shameless plug for a fabulous event and a worthwile cause:

The 8th annual Celebration of Reading event will be hosted by Jeb and Columba Bush, who will be joined by former President George H.W. and Mrs. Barbara Bush. Gifts to the Celebration of Reading allow parents and their young children to attend literacy classes free-of-charge. Over 135 family literacy programs in Florida have been started or expanded by the donations from Celebration of Reading.

Each year the Celebration of Reading is fortunate to draw on well-known authors who join the event. This year's authors include Sharon Robinson, Greg Mortenson and Mary Matalin.

If you are in the south Florida area and would like to attend you can purchase tickets online at or make a donation.
