WHY READ?

California?s El Dorado County may have spent this spring reading The Call of the Wild as opposed to The Maltese Falcon but they still managed to embed a little mystery into their Big Read events through readings by local author, Todd Borg. Borg?s mystery series features private eye Owen McKenna, a detective in California's Lake Tahoe Area. Borg explains what keeps him reading:

?I read because opening the cover of a book is like opening a door into a new world, a world with more excitement, mystery, thrills, intrigue, and suspense than the real world. A world with more justice, honesty, ethics, and truth than the real world. I read because in books I find the world in which I most want to spend time.?
