Reading isn't just fundamental, it's a lifesaver. If you didn't read you'd be hopelessly insane. If you didn't read you'd have skyrocketing levels of stress, anger and plain old crankiness. Reading rescued you, but what about the poor dinosaurs? They never got a chance to reduce their stress levels and create happier lives. Now they are all dead. Don't let that happen to you. Keep reading and keep strong. And when you're done, we'd like to borrow those books from you.
