Words For the Future
Reading will allow a child to gain access to their future. It's true that being literate opens up the world as far as jobs are concerned. Expanding the mind through imagination is also important. Having an imagination is so much more than allowing a child to build a world of pretend play. It allows for creative thinking in other markets as well. Reading can enable them to come up with new ideas in their future jobs, react to changes in family life, and bolster self esteem through self creativity. The question is not is reading worth while, but how do you get a child interested?
Build Them Up
Hopefully everyone will get the chance to visit a library in their lifetime. However, life can become busy and rides are not always available. To ensure reading is an easy access hobby consider building up your own personal library collection. The prospect may sound daunting, but it is not far out of reach. Start by looking into your family's interests. Also, keep in mind the various ages and reading levels. These bits of information will make sure the funds for your books are invested wisely.
Books can be expensive, especially if they are hardback. Here are a few money saving tips to help stock your library without breaking your bank account. Use your interest and age considerations list to visit yard sales and flea markets. There are always a few books to be had and you can get a book that once sold for high prices with the change in your pocket. These are great locations for children's books and early readers for kids. Often, as the children in the household age, the family will be interested in clearing out the items no longer relevant. While at these sales don't be afraid to politely haggle. Keep in mind the condition of the book and how much you want to spend. Stick to your budget and buy items to last.
Know Your Literature
If you choose to go to a bookstore there are a few tricks to saving a penny or two. Always start at the discount sections. Often you will find popular titles that are released for less because they were last year's number one hit. This is a great way to get hardback copies. You can often locate classics on your child's school reading list here as well.
Another little trade secret is the traditional and trade paperback. There are three types of print books: hardback, trade paperback, and paperback. Being willing to wait for your favorite author can pay off. Hardbacks will always be the most expensive and it is typical for a successful writer to release a paperback version six months to a year after the hardback. Not all authors release in a standard paperback size. A trade paperback is slightly taller and more expensive than the standard, but will still save you money. Prices will often run like $29.99 for the hardback edition, $9.99 for the trade paperback, and $7.99 for the standard paperback. This is not specific, merely an example.
Another place to look for previously owned books can be used book stores as well as online. The advantage to the used book store is you will know your sales tax and there is no shipping charge. Prominent online sellers will often have the new option and right below the listing are used offers. You can decide the price you wish to spend and find the best condition of book for your budget. Keep an eye out for free shipping offers!
Building a personal library doesn't need to be a fantasy. Having diverse literature at your family's finger tips is within your reach. Set a budget and keep your eyes open.

In a very short amount of time you can give your children and others access to reading, and through reading, the world.
