Rather than play at recess, Ms. Everett would take those who were interested on a walk across the field to my town's public library.
I belonged to many reading book clubs at this library (and still have the certificates to prove it :) and spent many hours with my mom roaming the aisles and shopping at the book fairs.
This is something I still do to this day and last weekend, I attended this same library's book fair where I purchased two bags of books for $2/each!I feel close to my mom when I read and go to my library's book fairs. In a few days, she will have passed away 20 years ago and I miss her now more than ever.
Where did you get your love of reading from and have you read any of these books?
always take place in silence,
when only the heart speaks."
