      I travelled all my life and lived in the Middle East for 17 years. I recall my aunt said to me 'I never worry about you, because you are never lonely.' 'How do you know?' I replied. .Because a reader is never lonely.'

      A super site which provides me with such a good supply of books and thus knowledge. Have been spreading the news of this great site. Spend many hours discovering the wonders of nature in Scotland and winning this prize would allow me to explore and learn even more.
