About Me

I am beyond vexed that the lottery has not made me a winner. I am not greedy for millions ~my needs are simple: good books, better wine, and a new vehicle.

Foreign Concept

I read this article and am blown away. I read an average of 4 books a week. I never realized I am in the minority where reading is concerned. I used to have a bumpersticker that said "Kill Your Television". I'll have to find another.

hahaha Sid & I had that same bumper sticker, and then after i left him i bought it again for my own car...I like to call it "the plug-in-drug." gawd i hate that thing and it's an ongoing source of strife at Chez Prana. Slack-jawed, that's the way *some people* watch it.

"If I'm going to get a story, I'll get a movie." (quoted from the construction worker in AL). Movies aren't the same as books on any level at all. I've always enjoyed reading and pre-mom days I could read at least two books per week, maybe more if I was so inclined to stay up all night. Now I'm down to one per week.

We read to Cody every night, I really hope he learns to enjoy reading and not see it as a chore. I can't imagine going through life without reading a book for enjoyment.

Thanks for sharing that. TV definitely contributes to the "dumbing down" of America.
