"Reading is a lost art and I wish people would find it."
I've repeated that phrase many times over the past few months. Yes, I'm mostly referring to adults who refuse to read important notices or directions. However, many have lost the joyous art of reading books. There is so much to find--so much discovery--in reading.
As a child I didn't find reading enjoyable. With my childhood eyesight problems, reading was painful and I hated it. That is, until I found audio books. Audio books opened a whole new world for me.
Although my vision was later corrected well enough for me to read standard print books, I still find much pleasure in the occasional audio selection. I can work on other projects and still keep up with a good story.
I loved reading to my students. When I babysat my grandniece, one of the first things she would ask me was "Can we read a book?" She now in 1st grade and learning to read herself. I hope for the honor of once again having the opportunity of helping others find the joy of written words.
