NYC Reads 365

Reading is an essential life skill. It is an everyday, anywhere activity. Without the ability to read well, children are limited in what they can accomplish. A person who reads well has the ability to own his or her learning process.

Most importantly, reading is essential because words build our foundation for ideas, expression, creativity, opinions, and beliefs.

There’s a reading genre for everyone and for every age, whether you are four or ninety-four. Whether you prefer classical literature, poetry, fashion magazines, biographies, self-help books, science fiction, or romance novels, there’s a book somewhere for you.

The old saying “practice makes perfect” is absolutely true for reading. We know that children who have repeatedly been exposed to books from birth develop strong reading skills and a love of reading.

NYC Reads 365 challenges New Yorkers to read every single day. Read for pleasure, read to find out, read to argue, read to persuade, read to laugh, read to cry, read to understand, read to forget. Help us create a new generation of readers. For more information, read the press release for NYC Reads 365.
