Expand your mind, lose yourself in your imagination...I know it can be tricky to find the time to pick up a book but doing so is vital to your personal well-being. It gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a topic that is important or interesting to you. It also allows you some time to escape some of the drudgery of daily life. Lets face it...life can be stressful no matter how wonderful it is....Reading can be a great source of relief to your mind and spirit. Another benefit is that it also encourages your children to read. And reading is also an important activity to do together. It allows time away from electronic stimulation and encourages quality time together. Besides it is an activity that costs very little money, especially if you have access to your local library and carry a library card....What are you reading right now? I am hooked on The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
