Support Your Local Bookstore

Looks like my parents got at least one thing right: “A new large-scale study, featuring data from 31 countries…finds the advantages of growing up in a book-filled home can be measured well into adulthood.”

Increased rates of literacy (defined as “the ability to read effectively to participate in society and achieve personal goals”) and numeracy (“the ability to use mathematical concepts in everyday life”) are just some of the advantages conferred when there are as few as 80 books on your home shelves.

So why not do your kids a favor? Build ’em a library.
