Suddenly I heard a Rappingat my Chamber Door… : 

Suddenly I heard a Rappingat my Chamber Door… I was tuned in to reading for entertainment as a young child, before computers, kindles, and when there was only 3 channels on television. “There is nothing on TV to watch!” to which my Grandfather aptly replied, go read a book. This simple yet effective statement changed my perception of entertainment, as well as opened my mind to creativity and imagination.

History of Reading : 

History of Reading The history of reading dates back to the invention of writing during the 4th millennium BC. Although reading print text is now an important way for the general population to access information, this has not always been the case. With some exceptions, only a small percentage of the population in many countries was considered literate before the Industrial Revolution. Some of the pre-modern societies with generally high literacy rates included classical Athens and the Islamic Caliphate.
