March is famous for windy weather, St. Patrick’s Day, and the first day of spring. It’s named is derived from Martius, which was the first month of the earliest Roman calendar. That word Martius came from the word for the planet Mars, which was named after the Roman god of war…who was also the god of agriculture. But avid readers may also know that March was also the month when Dr. Seuss…the famous children’s book author and illustrator…celebrated his birthday. For many reader, Dr. Seuss books were the first books they read as children.
So it is fitting that March is now also celebrated as National Reading Month. It is also appropriate that this month, for a limited time only, Amazon is offering special discounted prices on some of its most popular e-books and e-readers.
