Someone once said "A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't."
I love a good read year-round. When it's cold I want nothing more than to curl up by the fire with some hot coffee and read, and when I'm basking in the summer sun by the beach a light read is the way to go. Not only does it take you away to a different place, it keeps your mind sharp. I highly recommend trying it out if you don't already partake in reading :)
