Reading


 

There are books out there for everyone.  The key is finding a book that's just right for you and your personality.  You know you're reading a great book when you think about the characters and the plot when you're not even reading it.  A great book is one that you just can't wait to get back to after you put it away. Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power!
