This is tremendous, Judy! Come to think of it, reading comes a close second for me. I need exercise first and foremost!
I can't live without reading! I do it everywhere and anywhere. If I go to a new city, the first thing I look for is the library. I have a nook and it is sometimes all I can doto keep from buying new books daily. I read everything! This habit started when I was in first grade and has continued throughout my life--I'm 59 now. You can make new friends, visit new places, learn any subject, and escape from just abut any situation. When I got a cover for my nook I chose the one that says, "She had her nose in a book and her head in the clouds." It's most appropriate for me!
