The magic of words.
Reading is air. Words. Ideas. Stories. Real and imagined. I can feel it when I have gone too long between books.
So Many Books (SMB) celebrates not just the stories but the audience, readers, and non-readers. All of us have a story to tell about our reading life and how books have, or haven't, impacted us.
My own love affair with words started before I could talk. Words filled the air, even though I didn’t understand them, I knew they held magic. I scribbled with my crayons thinking I was writing. My Father read the newspaper to me, while I sat on his lap. My Mother, we read everywhere and anywhere, each of with a book handy at home, in the car, and outside.
