Read a Book

Today's Thursdays are for Thanksgiving post is I am thankful for books and for the simple pleasure of enjoying a good read.

In my reading world today, I read very few fiction books. Most of what I read today are books on apologetics, bible study or (more recently) healthy eating and healthy living. I am currently reading a fiction book written by one of our writer's club members--Joe the Dreamer: The Castle and the Catapult by Ada Brownell. It's one of those that is on the Kindle app on my phone and I am able to read as time allows. It is one of three books that I am currently reading. My review will be on Amazon when I complete it.

I post about book reading today because of a Facebook post that I saw earlier today. I find it sad and a very poor commentary on our society that we are becoming non-readers. Find a book about something you like and read it. Read a classic. Read a comic book! Just read.
