Someone once asked me that if I had to choose between reading or travel, which would I choose? I am an avid traveler and reader so this was a very difficult choice. After some consideration I chose to keep reading of course, and not just because I am a teacher-librarian. I love the fact that reading engages your mind, that it introduces you to knew ideas and historical events, that it teaches you how to build and fix things, and that it can make you laugh out loud. I feel privileged to be able to read and travel, but it's comforting to know that I can journey all over the world, page after page, through the stories I read.
