Have a read

Time spent reading is never wasted; the library is a cheap alternative and man it’s hard to see you laptop screen in the sun. If knowledge is power, and ignorance goes hand and hand with hate, then we better keep reading. Your education can only open doors to new ideas. So find a comfy piece of grass, or the shelter of a tree and relax with a book, it’s that easy.

Here are few suggested favorites by friends of your “rock”. Some offer insight into spiritual connections with your planet, some tell the stories of this planets greatest crusaders, some are purely education and some are just interesting reading. So grab a book and learn to love your rock.
