Montgomery locals Oct. 12, 2016

Am I the only one who thinks that cold weather is the best time of the year to read? I enjoy reading all year round, but there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book, a warm blanket, and a cup of hot cocoa.

The more time goes on, the more scientific studies are showing the health benefits of reading. So grab a book and enjoy some good literature as well as the added physical benefits.
