We don’t need any reason or excuse to read but if you feel the slightest guilt for going out and having a fabulous time with intelligent company just remember you are doing this to be a wonderful example. As research shows:
….not only do parents who enjoy reading have children who read better but that children read better precisely because their parents are enthusiastic readers.
