Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. ~Joseph Addison
Time to enter into the pages of history, romance, adventure, faith! The local libraries, Amazon, and Knoxville’s own McKay’s bookstore can be endless worlds of exploration, as good books take us anywhere and everywhere we want to be! For seniors (and anyone with a vivid imagination and soul yearning for adventure!), reading can be therapeutic and a great way to spend a summer afternoon.
