Reading makes a reader's world wider. It also awakens the reader's imagination as he learns and develops critical, cultural, and social sense. The more one reads, the greater the pleasure one gets from knowing about the world around them and their manifestations. Go to a library. There you will find an imaginary life and enter dimensions you've never seen before in this world. LEONIRES (Léo Bargom) Barbosa Gomes was born in Iguaraci on February 5, 1961.
