8th Century English scholar, Alcuin of York is quoted as saying,

“Ye lads whose age is fitted for reading, learn! The years go by like running water. Waste not the teachable days in idleness!”

Over 1,200 years later, I can’t help but feel as though these words have never been more relevant.

While others search for another television show to binge watch, let me encourage you to look for a great book to binge read.

While others look to increase the size of their screens, look to increase the size of your library.

The years do go by like running water.

So let’s spend them wisely.

Let’s continue to learn and grow.

Let’s continue to be teachable.

Let’s make the most of our down time to invest in our future.

What great books would you like to recommend?
