Crissy Haslam, First Lady of Tennessee :: Read 20 Family Book Club - Resolve to Read | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

" I am very excited that today is January 1, 2013, the first day of the New Year! On New Year's Day, it is tradition to make a New Year's resolution, a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals for the coming year. This year, I encourage you and your family to recommit yourselves to reading at least 20 minutes each day. Your pledge to read each day can be one of the best activities to promote success in and out of the classroom, and it would be a great way to kick off 2013!"
