Do you remember when your love of reading was born?
EVERY day, I post two writing/book/literary quotes on Facebook: one on my personal page and one on my business page. After a while, as interesting as they are, they sometimes begin to run together. This one stood out for me, perhaps because I was instantly transported back to that moment when my life was changed forever.
At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book – that string of confused, alien ciphers – shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.
