Re: Slow reading

Don't lose hope! Many things in life wax and wane with time, losing an interest in reading for a short time only opens up the opportunity to climb trees! Don't worry about the books, have fun.

A spark/ark (no matter how improbable in a computer set-up correctly) can ignite it with...
