It is difficult to understate the value of reading books. As someone said, you need grist for your mill. The books are the grain, your mind is the mill, and your imagination bakes the bread. We need to eat the bread, so make sure it is fresh, and make sure there is plenty of honey butter.
So make sure you find the best books, turn off the TV, get up an hour earlier and read, read, read.
I’m thankful for my books. These are some of my best friends. Their truths keep me going.
