I have started to read a new book, Reading in the Wild, (The book whisperer’s keys to cultivating life long reading habits) by Donalyn Miller. I chose this book to help me as a reader and future teacher to learn reading habits just like the book states. I believe that it is very important for every child to have the opportunity to learn to love reading. I hope that this book will give me ideas to practice myself and to apply to my future classroom as well.
In regards to the meme for this week, we are supposed to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during my reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written.
As previously stated, I have just began reading this book and it started out with a great quote which gives the reader a lot to think about…
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”

What I understand is that the person who reads many books will get to experience many great things reading can offer, such as: training the brain, gaining more knowledge, and most important of all, using the imagination!
