Discount Ticket

Knowing how to read and not reading books is like the pair of red gumboots in my attic.

Collecting dust while hearing the rain.

It’s like holding your favourite sandwich and not eating it. If you owned a telescope that could show you the universe, would you not use it? But that is what reading is; opening up a universe of humour, of adventure, of nostalgia for places unvisited. And if you have a discount ticket to the rest of the universe, use it to travel across the seven seas, the starry skies, and territories unfathomed. Use it well.
