We must commit ourselves to the printed word and make a pact with other readers of the word to never, ever let those reading embers go out. Today commit yourself to read and pass the joy and knowledge of reading on to a new generation. Blow on those embers to create an even bigger of fire that will glow into the future generations and beyond. Read on.
