Share the Joy: Reading




I always find JOY
when I'm surrounded by
books.

When I was a little girl,
my mother worked in a college library.
I have memories of going to the library
and sitting on the floor,
looking at children's books.

Later she worked in the main library branch
in the town where we lived.
At nine or ten, I was given special permission
to read grown-up books 
because I'd pretty much read my way through
the age-appropriate stuff.

It's a great joy to me that my three grown children
are all confirmed bibliophiles.





What gives you JOY?
