Despite my busy schedule, it is important for me to take time to read.  Reading is one of my passions.  Reading transports me to different places and times.  It forces me to think critically.  It expands me intellectually.  It develops and improves me.  Reading is a gift that cannot be taken for granted.  Read something of your interest every day or every week.
