Did you know that April 12th is Drop Everything And Read Day? I didn't, but what a dear, dear idea. We're all supposed to grab a book, tune out the distractions and read for thirty minutes. There's hardly anything I cherish more, yet always seem to put everything ahead of it, from the laundry pile to Pinterest. Well, not today. Or tomorrow or the next day, either. I'm starting a new chapter (or returning to a favorite old one?) in which I drop everything to simply read for pleasure for at least a half hour every day. Longer, if I'm lucky. It feels like booking a date with a beloved friend.
