This is sad

A survey showed that 53% of Americans hadn't read a book in the last year. Even if they survey is 50% off, that would be 26% have not read a book. As an author, and someone that loves books, that is frightening.

Whether you want to improve your career, yourself, or just enjoy yourself, a book is great. I got a magnet years ago from Amazon that said "A room without books is like a body without a soul, " a quote from Cicero and I've since thought that if I get a bookstore, I want to call it "A Room with a Soul."

Read a book this year. At least one. Go to the library, pick one out, and read something.
