Books and Life

Copy of A good book

How about you? I can’t imagine life without reading and books. Not only do books take us travelling on our own personal magic carpet ride, they show us how to have a better life. Why make repeat the mistakes of those who have gone before us, when learning from their mistakes can save us the pain?

Stories and parables show us the consequences of our actions without sermons and lectures. If we listen and learn, we can improve the quality of our lives immeasurably.  There’s a reason children love stories, and children’s stories often have lessons embedded in them. And there’s a reason why so many of those stories endure, are read and reread, republished and rewritten, updated and made and remade into movies.
