Weekend Wishing: Share a Story, Shape a Future

This weekend, I wish to find the time to read the whole week’s worth of posts  by all the wonderful folks who put together the Share a Story, Shape a Future blog tour for literacy.

Elizabeth Dulemba, who drew that cute-as-button bear button for the tour, hosted today (check out her blog here). She explores (with all kinds of fab links) the techno-side of reading, which I have to admit, pulls out a mixed-bag of feelings for me.

I’m intrigued by all the technical applications for reading books, and I think these apps appeal to young readers. In fact, my gut tells me that techno-reading is the reading wave of the future. But I love books-the feel, the smell, the intimate experience of being curled up with pages, and I want future generations to enjoy that experience. I guess the technical applications are a little like heaven-I’m all for it, just not ready to get there yet.

And here’s a few other wishes I have, while I’m at it. I wish that every kid finds somebody wonderful to encourage reading, techno or old school. And I wish all kinds of wonderful things for all those who took the time to make the Share a Story, Shape a Future literacy blog tour such a wonderful place to visit!
