Reading is good


Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia, is reported in the NYTimes to be the newest national ambassador for young people’s literature. The article quotes her saying, "I think of all the joy reading has given me,” she said. “It is not just because it is good for you, but because it is good."

Printed books, e-books, libraries, clouds, whatever--what remains is the solid basis for it all that reading is good.
