This is what it’s all about, folks.
For as long as I can remember, reading has been an important part of my life. When I was a kid, I took part in the summer reading program at the Biloxi Library. In fourth grade I wrote a fan letter to Stephen King (and yes, he wrote me back). In college I majored in English and American Literature. And when it came time to pay for college I worked off-and-on at Barnes & Noble for four years. Yes, through thick and thin, books have always been there for me.
So of course I was in hog heaven when my class took a field trip to the library last month. Here you see just two of the many great pics that were taken that day.
Look closely and you’ll see that the book Daisy and I are enjoying here is Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which just makes the whole experience that much sweeter. (For a little piece of my personal history with Roald Dahl, click here.)
