The Omnipresence of Reading
Reading is part of everyday life and a necessity. We read every day even when we are not aware that we are. We are introduced to reading and start reading since the day we are born, I may even say that even so when we are in our mother’s womb. Reading is first done by our nervous system in our body. A newborn is capable of feeling things such as pain. Take a sleeping newborn and pinch him.

Now that I think of another verse, I may say that reading or a form of reading has been present since the beginning of eternity. In the book of Yahanan (John) in chapter 1 and verse 1 we find: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Yahweh, and the Word was Yahweh.
