The more you read, the more you know.

My BFF Lauren always reminds me of a quote from our childhood:

The more you read, the more you know
The more you know, the smarter you grow
The smarter you grow, the stronger your voice
When speaking your mind, or making a choice

It was on a libary poster when we were in the 4th grade, and we’d spend lunch line time trying to memorize it. 12 years later, we still remember it, so it worked! In light of reading, here’s some information about my reading love…

About sorellaaglio

I am 26. I love nature. I love trying new things, and I love children. I love cooking, baking, and sometimes even cleaning. I am an organized mess, and yet manage to eat three meals a day and get eight hours of sleep a night. If you stop by, I'll feed you and make you a mixed CD. Oh, and I am a fan of you.
