The 5 Best Books You Should Be Reading During Read A Book Day and Beyond

Known as one of the best-loved days encouraging us to relax and take a break from our busy schedules, National Read a Book Day is the ideal opportunity to choose what book to read next.

Whether you choose to get cuddled up on the sofa or with family and friends, prefer revisiting old favourites or diving into something new, we've devised a list of the 5 best books you should be reading during Read a Book day and beyond.


The Final Fence: Sophomores in The Saddle

by Marc O'Brien

Fictional Author, Storyteller and Barry University Communication Arts Graduate, Marc O'Brien began writing with purpose as a Journalist. Growing up in a nurturing environment, O'Brien always knew that it was his responsibility to educate people on facing adversity while challenging the reader to interpret and learn from his writings.

Sparked by the skills obtained during his College years as a therapeutic horseback riding participant and South Florida Hunter/Jumper Association, The Final Fence: Sophomores in the Saddle will educate you in a way you most feel comfortable using interpretive fiction.

Published by Austin Macauley UK, The Final Fence: Sophomores in the Saddle takes a unique and honest look at life filled with support. Contrasting the academic classroom to the athletic field while emphasising the significance of fostering the disabled demographic based on real-life experiences, it is extremely unusual for someone to convey an issue of a disabled person's value to others outside of conventional "inspiration."

Eddie Patrick, the primary character, is a make-up of O'Brien who majors in Communications Arts. Patrick attempted suicide using two canes as a result of something beyond his control and two wristbands, a symptom of being self-destructive.

On the contrary, Danielle Lynne, who has never competed on a national level, is able-bodied with the skills required to qualify for the Olympics.

When the two well-meaning persons, Patrick and Lynne, meet on a college campus, their shared love of horses sparks a classroom debate. Working toward a shared objective, their friendship exemplifies how one person dealt with a physical impairment that was not their fault, the significance of talking about mental health, great friendships, respect, achieving closure and having a stable foundation.

O'Brien's strong portfolio also comprises of fictional books 'Peter The Peteeatrick Panda’s Playground,' 'Peter The Peteeatrick Panda and the Pandy Chip Pancakes' and 'A Special Person to Ride.'

Based on socialisation and how we perceive a disability, The Final Fence: Sophomores in the Saddle will empower you to discuss real-life issues peacefully rather than feeling inspired. Everyone is capable of contributing to society and making an impact. The Final Fence is not about winning, it is about living.
