Read from January 10 to 13, 2012

This is a beautiful memoir about the power of reading and the determination to keep a tradition alive. 3,218 consecutive nights of her father reading aloud to her.

This memoir includes snippets from Kristen "Alice Ozma" Brozina's life, some of which you will literally laugh out loud after reading, and some of which will make you tear up because you can relate to her. This is about what life lessons she learned with her father, many of which revolved around their reading time together.

But most importantly, The Reading Promise is a promise to keep reading, no matter what. A promise to share your love of reading with others, no matter what. A promise to read to your children, and with your children, no matter what. A promise to support the love of reading in your community, no matter what.
