Will Rodgers once said `A man can learn only two ways, one by reading, and the other by association with smarter people.` He had alot of quotes that became popular, the reading way is easy and cheap these days. If you have the time stop by your local public library, my partner and I both love to read and the library has unlimited books on any subject you are interested in.
If you have kids now is the time to get them into reading, a library trip can be a fun and exciting time for them, showing your kids you enjoy reading will help them find the joy of books. My partner has a different idea than I do about which are the best books to read, we are opposites in a few things, but we compliment each other in our relationship, maybe that`s the way you and your partner are also, I believe it works just fine.
If you are not a big reader, the next time you are sitting around being bored, remember the library, take your partner and the kids, it will turn out to be more fun than most trips, keep in touch.
