UPDATE – GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! I HAVE EMAILED THE WINNER 🙂
Unless this is your first time visiting the blog, you know how much I love to read. It’s my absolute most favorite pastime.
I’ve always been a paper books kind of girl… E-readers just don’t do it for me. I know some people find them to be more convenient but I’m a stickler, even for a longer trip like Asia, where I packed 5 books in my suitcase. Honestly, I just love paper books. I like to hold a book as I read. And in a way it’s a bit of a ritual and sensory experience. I really like the actual feeling of the paper between my fingers as I turn the pages. And I love the way new books (and bookstores!) smell.
How Life Unfolds is running a “15 pages a day”
Read more about that here! They asked me to film a little “day in the life” style video which shows my day to day (and probably answers the question of how I manage to read so much!!!). I hope you enjoy! AND, to maybe further incentivize you to get those pages in, we are giving one lucky reader a $500 gift card to Amazon (so that you can stock up on alllll the books!)

Reading 15 pages a day (on paper) has so many benefits. Increased language skills and mental development, a better memory, and increased focus!Also, it can help with stress and anxiety as it’s proven to lower your heart rate. This article has a lot of good information about the benefits of reading on paper.
Anyone can do this challenge! No matter your age or literacy level. I encourage you all to pledge to read at least 15 pages a day in print to discover the benefits of consistently reading on paper. And if you do, share that you took the pledge on social media using #15PagesADay! And head over to the How Life Unfolds website… I did a little interview with them with more on how I find the time to read, my picks for the best summer books to read, getting over the hangover that comes after reading a really good book, and more!
