One of the blogs I follow is Lifehack. The daily posts are filled with tips on managing life, work, projects, and time. Today's post is especially appealing: 14 ways to cultivate a lifetime reading habit. Of course, my favorite tip is "Have a Library Day." Whether it's a classic you've been meaning to read or a book from the best seller lists, it's likely to be available in a library near you. To read the entire list of reading tips, go to: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifestyle/14-ways-to-cultivate-a-lifetime-reading-habit.html
Another great tip from this list: "Read to your kid." Remember that Carmichael Library has a collection of children's books, including most of the Newberry, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King award-winning books. Reading together is a great way to spend time with a child, and you'll be helping the child get into the reading habit.
