Turn Off The TV...

Turn off the TV!!!! It's that time again for Turn Off The TV Week - April 20 thru 26. One of the good side effects of TOTTV Week is READING. Pick up a book! I have sooo many folks tell me they just don't have time to read...bah humbug. Minutes are like pennies, a few here, a few there and it adds up. I have several books going at once..fiction and non-fiction, short ones, long ones. Waiting in line at the car wash? Traffic jam? Waiting for hubby at Home Depot? Waiting for puppy to finish business outside? Can't fall asleep? There are hundreds of opportunities for reading more than billboards. Carry a small books or magazine in your purse or car or briefcase. Come on, commit!
"I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book." — Groucho Marx remember him?

Happy Birthday Sue Graffton. 69 and still writing strong. Her Kinsey Millhone series has millions of global fans who don't need a TOTTV Week to keep up. Take a look at her newest: T is for Trespass listed in my favorites in the Amazon box. It's a good way to begin the reading habit.
