The stories of childhood leave an indelible impression, and their author always has a niche in the temple of memory from which the image is never cast out to be thrown on the rubbish heap of things that are outgrown and outlived.-- Howard Pyle
Today is Read a Book Day. On this day be sure to take some timeout of your busy life to kick off your shoes and relax with a good book. It doesn't matter where you read your book just as long as you do so in a comfortable manner. Allow your troubles to drift away as you lose yourself in the world of fantasy. Travel to the other side of the world, or take a trip to the Moon. One of the greatest joys of reading a good book comes largely from the great joy of discovery. Personally, I will always love my fairy tales.
I've always loved to read. It's so relaxing and therapeutic...as well as educational. Its entertaining. If you have young children, or elderly people in your home, take the time to read a book to them today. It is a wonderful time to bond with them and it creates pleasant, lasting memories. Sharing the joy of reading a book aloud to your child or to an elderly person who can no longer enjoy a good book is just one way you can help them experience the joy of reading.
And, with all this rain that is on its way, what better way to spend your day.
Books support us in our solitude and keep us from being a burden to ourselves. -- Jeremy Collier
