Tolle, legere?

By now I should know to be choose wisely which I will read after saying my Office and going to sleep. I like to read in bed before sleeping and tonight - though I'm rather tired and have to rise early in the morning - I picked up a book that I knew would be gripping.
Considering it now as I know I need to sleep but want keep reading, I'm reminded of what a couple of students asked me yesterday in class.
One asked, "How do you know so much?" I answered, "I read."
Another student asked a few minutes later, "Do you ever run out of things to talk about?" "No," I answered. "I read."
What would life be without books?
