For Book Lovers Everywhere

Dear Bibliophiles,


Give yourself a treat, avoid the lines at your local box store today and read this opinion/memoir piece by author Anne Lamott which appeared in the Sunday Week in Review Section of the New York Times last weekend. Lamott is a  popular author of down to earth reflective memoir with realistic insight rooted in the wisdom of sobriety and an adult experience of faith. The love of reading, cultivated by otherwise disfunctional parents, is one of the gratitudes on Lamott's Thanksgiving list.
 
What would your personal account of early exposure to the wonder of books include? Where do the memories lead you?
 
Its a great day to curl up with a good book? What are you reading? The middle school  librarian in me is eager to finish "Son" by Lois Lowry, the fourth in her "Giver" series.
 
Happy Reading!
 
Anne Lamott is the author of "Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers".

I love books! Love the smell of new ones, the comfort of old ones. Right now I'm reading "The Dominican Way", a collection of stories about Dominicans in various places and ministries. They inspire and awe. Just finished "Remi De Roo: Chronicles of a Vatican 2 Bishop". And I love my Bible! So many great stories!
