A Good Read

Charles W. Elio sums it up so well, “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers”.

Reading, that is reading books, is perhaps a lost art.  Work, social and time pressures inevitably impede our ability to set aside time to read.  It seems more difficult…for me anyways.  I hope to set aside more time, no I will set aside more time to read as my mind is a muscle that requires constant exercise and leisurely reading undoubtedly provides an intense workout.  If we spent just 15 minutes a day, reading at the average rate of 300 words a minute, we would read a million and a half words a year—or an average of 20 books! But, of course, we have to devote these 15 minutes every day.

I have a few favourite authors, and in the course of my journey, I will share and comment on the magic preserved in the pages of the books I read.

Happy Reading,
