Herb Diggens - "Thank you for having me"

James Allen - "Thanks' as well..."

Moderator Sam - "This week's topic is "The 10 Best Time and Place "Not" to Read a Book. Let's start with you Herb. 

Herb Diggens - "I believe the best place not to read a book would be on top of a cloud"

Moderator Sam - "Why is that Herb?:

Herb Diggens - "You could be interrupted by a passing airplane" They are very powerful and certainly would knock the book out of your hand as it flew by.

Moderator Sam - "Any comments on Herbs' statement, James?:

James Allen - "Yes. It is unsafe to ski down a hill while reading. Secondly, there is no such thing as blue bears. If its animals that fascinate you, libraries are a great place to go learn and read about them.

Moderator Sam - "Well James. What do you think the best place not to read a book?:

James Allen - "I think anyplace is a good place to read a book is mealtim
