Books for Christmas

For Christmas, I received nine books: one is a novel, three are about Winston Churchill, one is about hiking, one about ancient Rome, and three are about business.

What value each book can give me is determined only if I read them.

If a book goes unread, it has given me zero value and is reduced from a work of art or scholarly research to a dust collector on my shelf.

The only way to read a book is to make time for it. Since I consider myself a busy person, that means making time to read these new books.

I have to give something up to make time for them. But in doing so, I can feed my brain so it will think more creatively and be more informed.

After all, isn’t reading about Churchill a better use of an hour than scrolling through Instagram?
