A reading habit...

I've recently received the opportunity to work on a few projects that might help others to read more and to enjoy reading. In my preparation for these projects, I have found a renewed joy in my own reading habit. During this research, I came across this wonderful quotation:

"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life." -W. Somerset Maugham

Isn't that true? So often I find great solace and peace in a book when my life feels overwhelming and out of control. A refuge indeed.

(I found that quote at the top of this fabulous Lifehack article by Leo Babauta on tips for cultivating a reading habit.)
