All the lovely books!
“The only thing you absolutely have to know in life is the location of the library.” “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” “A good book makes you want to live in the story. A great book gives you no choice.” All book lover quotes from famous people. I’m sure you could add hundreds more, my precious girl.
I started reading to all of you before you were born and didn’t stop. I believed the vibrations of words spoken in a loving steady pace would make you want to explore this magic. I think it worked. Didn’t matter what others thought if I believed it, right? You are all hungry readers and one of you is a published writer who also now reads Mandarin. I guess reading in just one language isn’t good enough sometimes.
You know what I say to that?
and I still miss you. So much.
