Reading is Exciting When You Volunteer for the Rolling Readers Organization

Ken and I are often asked to read to kids in a classroom setting.  It's fun for us to visit with the kids and interestingly we sometimes end up reading books that was read to US when we were growing up.  But, we can only cover so many classrooms.  If you volunteer your reading talents with Rolling Readers so many more Northland children will benefit.  Consider giving a bit of your time to the kids, they'll light up your world!

Last week I shared the trailer for World War Z starring Brad Pitt.  I knew that the movie was based on a best selling book of the same title written in 2006 by Author Max Brooks. and I'm not a book reader, but I decided I should read a few pages of the book and see what I thought.   I read the book in 1 day, I couldn't put it down.  Amazing book.  Immediately I joined the ranks of book fans that were outraged at what they saw in the trailer.

New to E-book Readers? Get FREE One-on-One Assistance From the Duluth Public Library

I WANT ONE!  But, I don't know if I could give up my paperback books.  My daughter is hooked on hers, but she's young and embraces technology wholeheartedly.  I, on the other hand, have to take my time when it comes to learning "new computer techniques" and sometimes choose the "old-fashioned" way of doing things.  Maybe it's time to get an e-reader, now that the Duluth Public Library is offering FREE help.
