it's frustrating to know that so many kids nowadays waste time on on-line computer gamingsss. my parents inculcated in me the love of reading.. the traditional way by subscribing National Geographic and Reader's Digest, by reading daily news, and by going to the library. Reading takes us back to history, allows us to travel all over the world, and immortalizes the author(s) as we commune to his (their) book(s). Reading is the best form of mental exercise and it combats Alzheimer's disease! :-)
