The Gift of Reading

One of my favorite memories from my childhood is opening that gift on Christmas morning: flat, rectangular, hard…could only be one thing, new books! Our town didn’t have much of a library but my parents made sure we all had books on Christmas. And, if we were out shopping someplace during the rest of the year and spied a book we simply had to have, the wallet usually came out without hesitation. Books and reading were, and are, truly a treasured gift, so much so that I have collections of books. One of my favorites is my holiday collection, that includes books like these:

We hope you have a happy holiday season. Happy reading!
