A book is a magical garden carried in your pocket.

~Chinese Proverb

And just like gardens, books can't grow unless they're cultivated and fostered. Neither can the precious seeds of independent thought that germinate within them.

Do you remember the first book you ever read? It opened up a world of immeasurable size and limitless diversity. It changed your life. Books have the power to expand our view, shape our societies and change our world. This week we're celebrating our right to write and the need to read during Freedom to Read Week.

And speaking of freedom, the deadline for getting your Lotto for Life ticket is quickly approaching. Wouldn't having an extra $100,000 buy us a little more of that?

It'd certainly get us a whole lot of great books...and the beach holiday to read them on, too.
