Every May the Express features photos of students from Carpenter Elementary School who reached their Accelerated Reading point goals. This typically involves many students, so kudos to them for hitting their reading benchmarks!
I’ve written several columns in my eight years here at the Express about my love of reading. In the past, I have strived to read a certain amount of books, heck just finish one book, but time consumes me. (I was proud to finish Stephen Kings “11/22/63” in 2016. That’s an accomplishment in itself at over 1,000 pages!)
