The Gift of Reading

When I say that I believe reading is a gift, it is a message that comes from my heart. The joy–and even sorrow–that comes from a book can be a comforting companion.

Although, far from being that old, I can remember my own early childhood and the excitement I would feel each month when the mailman would deliver my copy.
