Have you read a book this month?

No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting – Mary Wortley Montagu

There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island – Walt Disney

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will go – Dr. Seuss

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all – Jacqueline Kennedy

Reading is a door to a world of wonder. Open it and find beauty or intrigue, mystery or life’s lesson. Reading will also take you on a journey of expression and explore the many forms of writing, without you noticing it.

Encounters with art and literature affects our sense. We feel joy, sorrow, fear, anxiety and grief. We empathize with the characters. We learn from them about ourselves and about other people.

Give me a good book and I can be contented for hours. Reading can soothe like no other. Given that I’m a pretty high-energy person, reading forces me to sit still and be still.
