|The Self-portrait, which actually looks like my Mother-In-Law.|
I love reading. Especially paperback books while traveling or when we have vacations. You don't even need to travel to visit in other countries and cultures if your read the books from there. I believe that studying in school is not that important but reading is. Everybody should have an opportunity learn to read. You can be a self-made genious and teach yourself from the books and internet. Sometimes it doesn't even matter what you read. My mother-in-law used to be a really poor and when she didn't have afford to books, she read the phone book! Here is her true story, finally in English. Enjoy!
One quote from the story:
"I stayed over in Helsinki at Lasse's place and went to sleep on the floor on a blow-up mattress that didn't have any air in it."
- Well, I have to make a note that Lasse was not married by then. ;) When nowadays my dear mother-in-law visit us, at least we pump some air in the mattress. Haha.
