The Best Things in the World
Nursing a good book on a sunny afternoon Are you kidding? Our attention-deprived generation has no idea what it's missing in avoiding books. Reading is awesome. Okay, we've all been plenty bored by certain books. That's a given. But when you find a book that you love, few things surpass the joy of reading it slowly and carefully. We're not talking about skim-reading or even normal-speed reading. I'm talking about slow, methodical, leisurely reading that includes the re-reading of good passages and so forth. This is one of my favorite things to do, and I highly recommend it to those who have very busy lives. One of the best things you can do to enjoy life is to pick up a good book and read it slowly. Life slows down, colors emerge from black and white, and you begin to appreciate the nuances and broad themes of your world. So, once you finish reading this, go outside and read a great book. The sun's out, the book's great, and the book's waiting.
