    everyone always says go read a book
    but tell me my friend what are you reading
    is every fact how it looks
    or is the context decieving

    where did they get the information
    did they experience it first hand
    or is it something they dreamed up while lookin at the conselations
    or does their writting posses a plan

    everything that is said may not be true
    it could be something they wish was real
    some books are made up concepts coming out of the blue
    and other books simply express the emotions the author feels

    they say in books you can go places
    explore distant lands
    and look upon different faces
    the adventures can be grand

    but not all books are created to cater to your imagination
    some of them are to get you to think
    to take your thoughts to a new destination
    and consume knowledge with every blink

    books of all different genres and sizes
    read as many as you can
    many hold non tangible prizes
    your wish is their command

    but one thing you must know is how to distinguish fiction from non
    although what you read took you for an adventurous spin
    be sure you dont get conned
    and if you are sad the adventure had to end..just grab you another and do it again

    :SuN040:I liked this sister. Actually picking up a book is not only mental stimulation, but with that stimulation comes menal wit, the ability to register certain thoughts...Things people are missing.
    This is a positive vibe on learning...I love it

    Some books spark the imagination, some take us to places we've never been. Others attempt to teach, which in that case we have to research and compare with other books dealing with the same topic. The wonders of reading. I like the direction you took this, well written scribe.
