I agree with all the things you wrote. Reading is such a great pleasure..

Very informative.Thanks

Great article.

There are so many good books out there too, that can enlighten, inspire, or educate. My favorite has to be Black Beauty.

My father was and still is a great role model for me. I always see him with a book in hand or a paper back in his back pocket when he goes somewhere. Every time I visit him, he always gives me books to take home that he knows interests me. Excellent work. Voted up.

@Brenda Nelson, Black Beauty is a favorite of mine too.

I still read my morning tabloid every morning and NatGeo before sleeping, well-written.

A lot of food for thought here. Thanks for a very good article.
