I am a bookworm and I live with a family of bookworms. I purposely encouraged them to be bookworms because reading is not only enjoyable but also educational. Reading takes us to many places right from the comfort of our favorite chair. Some of our books have traveled with us, adding yet another layer of memories to the story. For those of us who homeschool, having books within reach is often necessary for our school days, rainy days and lying around in the sun days.
