All these statements are so true. I am a big reader. A frustrated reader. Since years I don't seems to have time to relax and read a book. I think in the last 12 month I bought something like 20 books. I have not read any yet.

Good Morning Peter,

You MUST and I repeat you Must take time to relax more and read some of those books that you bought.

I can never sleep without reading first. You should try it, it's an excellent way to relax at night instead of watching boring TV.

My daughter suggested "Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral". Very good, I'm taking notes. Also reading "The Fool's Progress: An Honest Novel".
