Let’s relax and get lost in some great books.

Today is Read a Book Day and September is Read a New Book Month.  As the names clearly indicate, these designations are about encouraging us to curl up and lose ourselves in a good book.  No matter what genre we prefer, today is about reigniting our love and appreciation for the written word.

But first, what do we gain by reading?  According to, there are ten benefits of reading daily.  Log on to learn the details of the following ten enhancements to our reading daily.

  1. Mental stimulation.
  2. Stress reduction.
  3. Knowledge.
  4. Vocabulary expansion.
  5. Memory improvement.
  6. Stronger thinking analytical skills.
  7. Improved focus and concentration.
  8. Better writing skills.
  9. Tranquility.
  10. Free entertainment.

If we’ve neglect reading a book along the way, here are some suggestions to reignite the passion.

  • Challenge ourselves to start a book that’s been on our reading list for a while.
  • Revisit an old favorite and remind ourselves why we fell in love with it in the first place.
  • Join or organize a local book club so we can share our thoughts on different books and motivate ourselves to keep reading.
  • Host a book party where we discuss our favorite books and munch on dishes inspired by our favorite stories.
  • Visit our local libraries and check out some interesting reads.
  • Go through our own book collections and pick out a couple that we can pass onto others.
  • Encourage our children to read, or have them pick out a book that the whole family can read aloud.

We at The Maria Sanchez Show hope you will join us as we celebrate Read a Book Day.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.  Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
