Don’t become a closet reader

“For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.” ― Louis L’Amour

The return of warmer temperatures in many parts of the country have persuaded many students to go outdoors and multi task: catch up on their reading and of course take advantage of the fresh air and sunny skies. The confines of the library have been replaced by the wide open spaces that beckon us to go outdoors and enjoy the weather.

Do you want to spruce up your life and catch up on the many exciting adventures and opportunities for romance, discovery and exotic travel that life offers us all but are baffled as to how to go about doing this realistically?

The answer to this simple query may surprise you. Try reading a book either a paper bound edition or the more popular electronic type prevalent today at a reasonable cost.

Books are there for all of us to enjoy but only a limited few take advantage of the cornucopia of experiences that this print medium offers us all.

We are a nation of avid readers that range from text messages on our smart phones to the massive array of books, magazines and other online publications that grip our curiosity and attention.

Rather than sitting idly in the cool shade dreaming of being somewhere else select a book that inspires your interests and fires your imagination and dig in with both hands and both feet and enjoy it fully.


Getting totally absorbed in what you are reading is an excellent way to not only increase your vocabulary and knowledge but also transport yourself to other realms of experience that you might find to be to your liking.
