Reading – Does a Body (and mind) Good!

Reading on a bench


Regardless of your age.

Reading is always cool! One of the things I incorporate

into most of my days is taking a little time to read!

I have a book (or kindle) handy

while waiting for appointmentsย or trips to the park.

Relaxing in the evening

with a good book, curled up in a chair is a treat for me.

Have you read a book lately?

Give it a try! A great way to unwind!

Have an excellent day today!

  1. I love to read and cannot go to sleep at night without a book! Been this way for over 45 years now! Reading opens one up to whole new worlds and realms of possibilities! Lovely post Penny!

  2. Reading is the coolest thing ever!! I do love to dabble in a book or two myself. I am on a quest to get down as many of my collection as possible by March (or so) next year. I do like a challenge.

  3. Reading is like traveling to foreign worlds in so many ways, isn’t it? Now to kindle or to hold the bound book in hand — that is the question! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful post dearest friend ~ x Robyn

    • I prefer holding a book (the whole experience of the thing, turning pages, etc), but sometimes for convenience purposes the ereader can have an advantage, like you I agree dear friend, on which to use. Thanks Robyn, xoxo

  4. So funny Penny I about to go to the library I cannot live with out a book.
    Good post we should read is so relaxing. Have a great day!

  5. I read at least 3 books a month, and then I get a book as a present like today and read it within a day or two… love to read… taught me so much…

  6. A great message to spread Penny. I’m so afraid of being caught without a book or e-reader that I’ve put a reader on my phone!

  7. Being a textaholic means I cannot not read! The delight in being afflicted thus is only heightened when the text is coupled with my bibliophilism. Even instruction manuals engage and enchant. I know, I’m weird but knowledgeable ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. i agree penny , im slowly again starting to read while its more for studies im doing currently but ya gives one a break from real world lol

  9. Very true and I love reading. Only sometimes in the evening , my eyelids close while reading as I am so tired….. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have always more time in the holidays!

    • Hi Gabriella, Reading is wonderful isn’t it. I love the picture also, I’m not sure where it was taken but I can share with you where I obtained it! I have an online account with, where for a few dollars you can buy the rights to “use” a photo or illustration from their extensive (10’s of thousands) of images by various artist/photographers. They also have a morgue file, free photos section where the photos are completely free for use in editorials, blogs, etc. (free informational type online sites) That location is Hope this information is some value to you, Penny.

  10. An excellent sentiment Penny.
    I would think all of the wonderful bloggers we read each day are all great readers. There is so much wonderful literature out there to be engaged with.

Thank you for your thoughts!
