  14. Lately my reading doesn't seem so cheap. LOL I need to use the library more. Or better yet, read the books I already have waiting to be read!

  15. So true! I'm always telling my kids to read more because it's a cheap hobby (well, it can be), you can do it just about any time/anywhere, and it's endlessly entertaining. Reading is the best!
