In 2009 Kelly Gallagher defined readicide as follows: Read-i-cide n: The systematic killing of the love of reading, often exacerbated by the inane, mind-numbing practices found in schools. Add on to this dilemma the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down our schools and limited our students access to books. Reading has become just another chore for our students to plow through. It is time to bring back reading joy to our school community. That challenge was accepted and it was successful!
