It's Book Lovers Day! #NationalBookLoversDay

Ahh, books. An escape, enlightenment, encouragement, or just plain entertainment, you can find it all in the pages of a good book! I know we live in a digital era and you can easily read a book on a device, but I still hold an affinity for a physical book!

From beautiful leather-bound tomes to dog-eared paperbacks, from drooled on baby board books to valuable antiques locked behind sparkling glass, books can be found in most homes. However, to receive the full benefit of a book, you've got to open it up! Whether the words inside are carefully crafted or if you don't agree with any of the "claptrap" you find, those words have stirred up your mind, engaged your heart, and caused personal growth! Wow! Not many things in life can do that!

Reading a good book the first time is like finding a new friend. Rereading an old favorite can be like hugging a security blanket close. Make books a part of your life, and you will be an interesting conversationalist. Read good literature and your views will be expanded. Need to know how to do something? Grab a "How to" book, and the world is yours. Books!

I am thankful for one Book, the Bible, that has stood through winds of change and still provides valuable and applicable insight for my life today. Grab a book and buckle up for the ride!
