5 Tips for Reading More in 2022

It’s almost 2022, which means it’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s reading resolutions!

  1. Not sure where to start?  Stop by the AHS library and browse your favorite genre section, or ask Ms. Dragoo or Ms. Peters for a reading recommendation.
  2. Invite a friend to read the same book and make a date to discuss it when you’re both done.
  3. Turn off social media for 30 minutes a day and escape into a book.  It’ll improve your life.
  4. Pick an author, genre, or subject you like and read as many books in that category as you can.
  5. Check out the library’s collection of eBooks and audiobooks to read or listen to on your phone.

Happy reading!
