Why I read?
First of all, I come from a family of school teachers and ministers. The ministers in particular read A LOT.

But more importantly, reading opens my mind to thoughts and ideas I never would have had on my own. When I'm reading and walking (yes, at the same time), I am in the "flow" of life, and I'm perfectly at peace.

One result of my voracious reading habit is that I can share with others what I've learned, and that truly brings me joy.

I belong to BookMooch, a free online community that shares books for free with each other. If you want to read more but don't want to invest the money, find a community like Bookmooch and start reading!


Hint: Read children's books. They're shorter and make more sense.
