My first entry is simply a welcome to the new website for any visitors. I am learning how to do this, so bear with me. I am hoping to supply information on the new things happening in the IMC such as new books etc.
I want to let visitors know my feelings about reading, especially for entertainment. I enjoy going to visit other worlds, times and people via a good novel or biography. The time spent there is precious to me. Usually I try to read novels slowly, as opposed to non-fiction to which I am not a fan, and savor every moment in that place.
I challenge my young friends, who may not be big readers of novels, to try reading something just for fun. Let yourself picture the places and people described there, and I guarantee that you will be disappointed in the movie that may come out later because they didn't get it "right" according to your version. It makes for some great and intelligent conversations I promise. You may become addicted to it. If you aren't a big reader in high school (as I wasn't), it is highly possible that when you are out you may develop a love of reading novels. Scores of people fall into this category. So try it - you just might like it!!!
