The Gift of Reading

By Mal Keenan

Are you giving a good book to someone on your gift list this year?

Books can be enlightening and exciting.

Entertaining.

They move you.

Change you.

Affirm you.

Books act like windows to better understand other people’s lives,

Helping the reader to become more empathetic of others.

Books can also act as mirrors,

To help us see ourselves more clearly in the larger human experience.

Books encourage us to think more deeply about the world around us.

Perhaps you might consider giving a book (or two) as a gift this holiday season?
