Right now, we’re in transition mode, having moved to another city (temporarily) and attempting to settle into another home. It’s a rented house, so we’re restricted with what we can do. However, we’re blessed and grateful to be able to have family to stay with in the interim and to support us in numerous ways. I’m having connectivity issues because our landline connection hasn’t come through. So my blogging activities have been restricted.

I am grateful to Vidya Sury for doing a fabulous job with the posts for Write Tribe. Thanks, Vidya! ♥

The Joy of Reading

But I’m not grumbling. The joy of reading always compensates. My constant companions down the years, books have seen me through a lot – both good times and bad. I’ve managed to read 10 books in the 15 days we’ve been here and am once again grateful for my Kindle that helps me to have so much reading material available without having to lug a big box of books around.

Let me share some quotes on the joy and rewards of reading:

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. ~Chinese Proverb

I’ve never known any trouble that an hour’s reading didn’t assuage. ~Charles de Secondat, Baron de la Brède et de Montesquieu, Pensées Diverses

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations — such is a pleasure beyond compare. ~Kenko Yoshida

Do you enjoy reading? Are you teaching your children to be readers?
