“You’re the same today as you’ll be in five years except for the people you meet and the books you read.” – Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
I believe that is true, 100%! And as such, I love to read. I try to read between 1 and 2 books a month, as many non-fiction as I can, with some great fiction thrown in for fun 🙂 One of my favorite things to do? Curl up with a good book, especially in the warm sun on a cool day 🙂

I don’t read very many paper books these days (unless it’s a text book or one lent to me), as I do most of my reading on my Kindle. I have to say that I LOVE my Kindle and read so much more since getting it. It’s much easier to hold than a book (lighter and no cramps from holding the paperback open). But the biggest reason is that when I finish a book, I don’t have to make the trip to the book store, shop around for something good, and get it back home. I can buy a book directly from the device! Or when I pre-order a book, the day it’s released I have it for my reading pleasure! And when I do travel, it’s usually a long trip; no more hauling 4 books hoping I don’t run out of reading material 🙂 If you are a reader, I highly recommend getting an e-reader!
