That last quote is so true. If there were only more days in the week, or more hours in the day, to read good books -- the more I read, the more I see how much there always is to learn!
(By the way, I would like to thank you for your Planned Parenthood blog, which I found recently - it has been a wonderful resource for my schoolwork.)
