I am an avid reader and have a book or many books going at a time. I can remember learning to read as a child and the feeling that it was almost magical. I recall being tickled that I could read a page in the little reader, Sally, Dick, and Jane and the words remained right there on the page the same as they were before I read them. The next person, and the next, could see and read the very same words. Reading them, even aloud, didn’t use them up. Magical!
Today, I just finished a thought provoking book by Christina Baker Cline, Sweet Water, a novel. It is about mystery, family secrets, and relationships. It kept me turning pages late into the night. I have found myself thinking about it often since finishing it. I highly recommend it.
