After long last, I have picked up a few books to read. Strangely enough, one is on statistics and it's pretty good! Written by Charles Wheelan and called Naked Statistics. It's an easy read and if you can manage to slog through a bit of math here and there, the concepts can be grasped by anyone. This is the beauty of reading. I can return to concepts that I didn't understand before and READ through a narrative that helps me wrap my head around mathematics.
Reading can take you anywhere. When I am ready to start putting in volunteer hours again, I think adult literacy would be my first stop. You can volunteer in the tri-county southeastern Michigan area. Learn more:
