Reading is important

Dear Editor,

On a gloomy, rainy (a good thing) Friday, I got motivated to go through accumulated paperwork.

My experience was nothing new, the result being the same for you, most likely. Some information was no longer needed, some I was already incorporating into what I do. There were reminders of what I had been interested in at that time.

But what really "struck" me as one of the most important "finds" was the following statement written in my notebook:

'It's called reading. It's how people install new software into their brains.'

Need I say more?
