    There have been a lot of comments on the benefits of reading a lot of books. This is a question about the opposite side.

    My husband was the only child banned from the reading corner at school. When I met him I could not understand that story: it seemed ridiculous and unfair. Who would ban a child for reading in a world where so few children read at all?

    But having known him and been married to him for a while I actually can understand how this can have its drawbacks: he can escape into books for hours, days. Sometimes he will not notice what I say to him and will recede from the outside world so completely that life threatens to pass him by.

    This is not to say anything against my husband who is the most wonderful, honest and caring person that I am blessed to spend my life with and whose passion for reading has made him wise and intelligent; it is simply to say that even with reading one needs to make a choice and a compromise.

    I too am a lover of books and of the escape that reading and day-dreaming offer; and I too have to force myself to come back into the world every now and then in order not to lose the precious moments in my own life.
