#atozchallenge, R is for Reading…

Reading is the gift I give to me

And not only for birthdays…

Books take me down roads

To places I’ve not been

Envelop me in times not always my own

Bring wonderful new friends and experiences

And allow me to dream

Now all I need is more time to read…

~ Diane D.

(My A to Z Challenge theme is birthdays.)

  5. Reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children. Sometimes, I fear it is going out of style. Here in NY I uised to watch people reading books on the bus and subways and in the parks. Don’t see as much of that anymore. Nice write.

    1. Thanks, Drew. I mostly read on my tablet rather than actual books anymore but I’d choose reading over TV or a movie any day. Sadly, I think it is going out of style sometimes…

      1. My daughter has tried to taslk me into purchasing a Kindle (to help me with my blurred vision). I have been resistant. Yeah, people (especially the coming generations) are too hooked with TV, cable, Hulu, the internet. Reading isn’t what it used to be.

      2. Oh, I think you would love a Kindle. It’s the only way Paul will read because he needs to make the print larger and a lot of books don’t come in large print. I like it cause I can download library books or from the publishers. There’s a night read feature that makes the screen black w/ white print. I do most blogging on there, too. Wow, I sound like I’d get a commission if you buy one, don’t I? Lol

  6. I love when I am so taken in by a book that I forget I’m supposed to be sleeping… Like during that phase I went through when I was reading 3 or 4 books a week! Haha πŸ˜€ Yeah, I have a life. lol

    1. I’ve stayed up all night cause I had to finish a book before! Those are the really good ones. Now I try to make a game, like if I do 30 minutes on the treadmill, I can read something I want…

      1. Oh, that’s a great idea. Perhaps I’m going for an extra long walk today while my father-in-law takes my vacationing kids out for lunch. Then I won’t feel guilty about anything. Maybe. LOL
