Last spring semester, I began to recognize that the best way I could fulfill my academic desires of a strengthened education was by reading. Reading frequently, reading often, and reading on a variety of subjects. There are many reasons to pick up the habit of reading and I believe reading offers a lot to the human experience.

Procrastination is not a one-time occurrence for most college students. In fact, it is often times a habitually experience; a part of their daily lives, per say.
