Question of the Day: What Are You Reading?

It's Read Across America Day. Are you picking up a book?

Theodor Giesel would be 108 years old on Friday and it's time to celebrate.

For those of you who don't recognize that name, we're pretty sure you'll recognize his other name, Dr. Seuss.

Now, you could celebrate the day by not eating green eggs and ham, but a better way would be to take part in Read Across America.

This year, the National Education Association, a group of more than 3.2 million educators who work to improve public schools, is calling on book lovers around the nation to take up The Lorax, the popular Dr. Seuss children's book published in 1971 about the lovable creature who fights to save the environment. 
Share your plans for celebrating Read Across America Day with Patch or on the Read Across America pledge site.  NEA and Lorax' publisher, Random House, also have lesson plans and lots of other materials, resources and printable activities for teachers, parents and kids.

I'm reading "The Futures" by business writer Emily Lambert. It's a history of futures trading in Chicago.

I just picked up "Murder on the Orient Express." I found it while cleaning under beds and decided I'd rather read than discover what else was under there.

I am reading "Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots" by Deborah Feldman. Very interesting, indeed!
