I love to read. I read for pleasure (mysteries have always been my favorite). I read for knowledge about things I do not understand. I read to keep in contact with friends through the internet. I read all day long. Hubs reads constantly too. He reads different things than I do, but just as fervently. We will do all that I can to ensure that my kids will have a passion for the written word the way that Hubs and I do, because we believe that reading is a simple value that has given us opportunities and happiness in life that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.
