The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Time for Reading

A collection of books, their spines zig-zagging.  Leaning on each other.  Bucer's Coffee House, Moscow, Idaho.

Take time for reading today.  Reading is relaxing.  Books are a nice distraction from our daily lives.  A book can create hearth, a feeling of being at home-- in your body, and being at home in the place you live.  

I like to find a book and become immersed.  Some days I only have ten minutes to read, some days I can carve out more time.  I feel especially relaxed when I pick up a piece of fiction; I stop thinking about myself for a minute and get lost in the characters.  I just started reading The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.  I look forward to getting to know the characters and the inner landscape of their lives.

What books are you reading, Feel Good Crew?  Do you find reading relaxing?  I invite you to comment below.
