“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.” ~ by Elizabeth Hardwick
I developed a love for reading as a young child. The characters in the various books became my friends and together we had many adventures. I visited far away places and learned about many different cultures from the past and present. Reading instilled in me a strong desire to travel the world. As I traveled to the many places I’d read about, I recorded the sights with my camera so I could share my trip with others. Even though I am now able to travel the world, I continue to make new friends and visit new places by reading a book. The ability to read is not only important for being successful in today’s society; it also makes life more enjoyable. Let’s all make time to read daily.
