Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Water the Mind...READ! READ! READ!

Travel anywhere you like through the world of reading. Visit places you have often dreamed about, fall in love with Prince Charming, solve a mystery! Whether you prefer...

...the genre really doesn't matter – what really matters is READING! There is no better way to get lost in another world than with a book in hand. So, grab that book, maybe even give one to a friend or total stranger with encouragement to Water the Mind: READ!

April 23 is...

World Book Night

http://worldbooknight.org/

For the love of reading...
World Book Night is about celebrating the love of reading. Nothing quite matches the enjoyment that comes from losing oneself in a good book. But, with so many people having lost the habit of reading for pleasure, this event provides an opportunity for book lovers to SHARE WITH OTHERS the enjoyment literature provides.

World Book Night is celebrated with community events promoting reading and literacy. But it is at a personal level that this day really comes into its own; people who like books are encouraged to try to involve those around them.

Taking part couldn’t be simpler: think of a friend, family member or work colleague that you know does not read regularly and then give them the gift of a book. Visit your local library with a book donation. It doesn’t matter whether the book is new or second-hand, it just needs to be a book you have enjoyed or one you think someone else will like.

World Book Night USA no longer officially operates. But there's lots you can do, as an individual, to promote reading in your community - giving books or time for reading to people or organizations, supporting your local bookshops and libraries. Or you can support national charities like First Book, Room to Read: World Change Starts with Educated Children (Official) or donate to projects like Little Free Library's Kickstarter. Whatever you do, thank you for your past support of World Book Night and thank you for loving books and reading.
