For those who find reading a chore or challenge, I encourage you to consider publications that address your particular interest. (i.e. cooking, fishing, golf, cars, etc.)
Periodicals or articles are not as lengthy as a novel may be more palatable.
For those who have an appetite for reading and information, consider anything that is wholesome, (Godly), that will challenge you.
If you have specific questions or concerns, feel free to call me. Again, the goal is to learn, and have fun while expanding your vocabulary, reinforcing your ability to think, comprehend, articulate and grow.
Good reading. Enjoy the Summer respite.
