Reading books is a part of my life--as it is for many people across the world. However I fought the cause for years, and I lost out on the benefits. My teachers were right, my professors were right, my parents were right, my friends were right. But, after college I never perused the habit of reading. 20 years of not reading did not hurt me at all, however over the last 3 years of diving right in, I have seen a change for the better. February 2010 I started, and now almost 200 books devoured I see the difference. Read and read some
I really enjoy reading--I enjoy it day in and day out. But, in order for me to enjoy it and get out of it what I put in it, I must find a reading spot that is comfortable for me to read--I can not read in a cozy chair, I fall asleep. I cannot read in bed, once again I fall asleep. I have to sit at the dinning room table and read. There my mind is in the book, and not nodding off to sleep. Reading is an enjoyment we can do any time, any place--the key is to find yours. Find your spot; back porch, front swing, kitchen table. JUST READ, it will take you places you never thought you could go. The amazon jungle, Mars, the White House, Gettysburg, any where and any time we will be taken into thought, dreams, science--and if we can be taken there, where do you think kids will be taken? Read, Read and Read some more--1 book a week equals 52 books a year, take up the challenge. Start today.
My dad and I at the University of Cincinnati book store during holiday open house. Very good to back on campus for both of us. Both he and I were very honored to be asked to be one of the authors invited to attend.
