"THIS I BELIEVE:" BOOKS ARE A PRIORITY

KUHF-Houston Public Radio (88.7 FM) sponsors a daily five-minute series entitled "This I Believe," a national project designed to engage people to write and record the core values and beliefs that guide their daily lives. The hallmark of this program is sharing the guiding principles of average citizens...our neighbors, our coworkers and the people with whom we worship. On Friday, August 28, 2009, the entry was submitted by a local Woodlands resident.  Carolyn Boyd is an educator, currently teaching at the John Cooper School. Among her many joys is reading. Carolyn says it's been a life-long pursuit and as she explains in her essay for KUHF's "This I Believe", books will be a priority for her, for the rest of her life.

In her entry, Carolyn notes, "I do fear becoming my crazy uncle, whose living space constantly shrank with his growing collection of books. Hence the dilemma. If books can't create time, I will never have the time to read them all before I die. I can only hope that Jorge Luis Borges was right and Paradise really is a 'kind of library.' This, I believe."
