Wholesome Books For The Whole Family

Books for the whole family should be wholesome and entertaining. 

"Never read books you aren't sure about. . . even supposing that these bad books are very well written from a literary point of view. Let me ask you this: Would you drink something you knew was poisoned just because it was offered to you in a golden cup?" - St. John Bosco
