"It would be a good thing to buy books if one could also buy the time to read them; but one usually confuses the purchase of books with the acquisition of their contents. Arthur Schopehnhauer, 'On Books and Writing' (1851) in A Book Addict's Treasury

Acerca de Mim
I am a former elementary school principal. Retiring in June of 2011, has afforded me much more time to read. Previously, I was a teacher and encouraged my students to love reading. There's nothing quite as fulfilling as seeing a child wrapped up in a good book and transformed to another world/time/galaxy.
