1scoopReading is a really great pasttime… or least that’s what I’ve heard. 😉 I’m admittedly not a huge reader myself (although I do love listening to audiobooks). There are of course many benefits to reading (or in my case listening to) books: you get to take some time away from multi-tasking on your phone, you get to learn a something new, and you get to look smart! (Again, that mostly comes with the reading part as opposed to the listening option).

Well, in honor of the upcoming “Read A Book” day (yes, it’s a real day that exists) let’s take a look at some of the most bizarre books out there. These books are all real and available should be looking to read something strange and unusual on this important day, or any day for that matter. I’m talking tere’s a book called “How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack” and another called “How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety.” Those two definitely belong on everyone’s coffee table.

September 6th is National Read A Book Day, so if you’re reading this blog post after then, don’t fret – every day can be “read a book” day in your household! Have a look through my top ten list in the video above and feel free to sound off below about any other strange books you’ve come across in your readings (or listenings, if like me, you love hearing someone else read books to you – what can I say, my parents started doing it when I was a kid and I’ve just never broken the habit)!

National Read A Book Day happens annually on September 6th (not to be confused with National Book Lovers Day which takes place on August 9th).  The day is meant to be about sharing and celebrating reading. So you’re invited to read aloud to children and elders, your pets, or even your plants! There are no rules – it’s all just about the love of books.

Reading of course has many real benefits like improving memory and concentration while reducing stress.  It’s been shown to keep older adults minds’ in better shape because the more they participate in mentally stimulating activities, the better off their brains tend to be!  Books are an inexpensive entertainment, can be very educational, and can help keep your brain sharp!
