My mom used to take my book away, shove me out the door and lock it behind me, saying “Go play!” I hated it.
Today I recognize the value of that directive, but given a choice, I read; I read a lot — two or more books a week on average.
Not all my reading consists of the masterworks of literature. I like mysteries and thrillers. I read finance, political science, biographies, history, pulp fiction and best-sellers. I’ll read anything that looks interesting.
