Happy Read Across America Day!

Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, March 1 is designated as the 2013 Read Across America Day.  This is the 16th Annual Read Across America event that’s been observed.  To contribute to the celebration, we’re sharing several photographs of the many times and places perfect for reading!

It doesn’t matter where, when, or what you read–just go ahead and crack that book, magazine, or newspaper!
