Every so often I like to give myself a Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R.) Day. I find it to be a great de-stressor.
So, you want to know what exactly I do on a D.E.A.R. Day? First, I make sure I have the day off from work. Then, I check out a few good books from the library. On the morning of my D.E.A.R. Day, I wake up, have breakfast, then get straight to it. I Drop Everything And Read on the sofa or in bed all day long. I do nothing else, no cooking, cleaning, shopping, hanging out with friends or family, just nothing but read. As soon as I finish one book, I take up another. I find this exercise to be very relaxing and a true vacation for the mind.
At the Bronx Library Center we decided to have a Drop Everything And Read Day for everyone—maybe you cannot do this at home—your spouse or parent might not allow it! Your roommate might be too noisy. So come over to the Bronx Library Center on Friday, October 17, 2014 and give yourself a D.E.A.R. Day. You deserve it.
We have planned a marathon reading by authors, librarians and others from the podium in the auditorium from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
