I feel like reading has influenced my life in every way. I'm a more imaginative person thanks to novels. I'm a more informed person thanks to the newspaper. I have a great vocabulary because of all of the wonderful words I've been exposed to. I can spell like nobody's business! I'm trying my best to help my girls catch the same fever I have. We get so excited when they bring new books home from the school library. Going to the mailbox and finding a new magazine is like Christmas. Sometimes it feels like there are so many books and not enough time!
