Advertiser Staff

It's a no-brainer that books are good for you, but who has time to read? Here are tips to make room for reading from Stowers Innovations, a company that offers ideas for achieving a more meaningful life:

  • Join a book club. It will push you to read at least one book a month.

  • Browse the library. Without spending a dime, you can choose books on any topic that piques your interest.

  • Take a book to the doctor's office so you can actually enjoy the inevitable wait.

    SPEAKING OUT FOR SEABIRDS

    Did you know that Hawai'i has 22 species of breeding seabirds, some of which are rare? And life isn't getting any easier for them — mounting threats to seabirds include ground-dwelling predators like rats, feral cats and feral dogs. Learn more about these birds and efforts to protect them at "The Ecology of Hawai'i's Seabirds," a free lecture by Sheila Conant of the University of Hawai'i-Manoa's zoology department, 6:30-8:30 tonight at St. John Hall's auditorium. Details: 528-1432.
