They say you can tell a lot about an individual by the books he or she reads. I believe that. I mean how can someone lead if they do not dip into the minds of others or learn from the mistakes of the past. Anyone who says they do not read books is telling you one Texas-size Tall Tale. Crack open a book (or two) and get to reading.

I love to read. I read up to three books at a time.
