Plaxico Burress has learned that prison has benefits. He discovered that he enjoys learning through reading.
"It was one of those deals that kind of grew on me," Burress told Newsday. "Ever since I went to prison and in my spare time, I try to read as much as I can. Having a lot of time, I found something that became something I love to do. And that's gather information through reading, expanding my knowledge. I never would have known that if I didn't go through what I went through."
"Reading never would have been on my radar," he told Newsday. "Now my wife comes into the room at night and I'm reading my book, she just starts laughing. It's something that gives me peace."
