I find it appropriate to introduce my blog to the world on National Book Lovers Day. After all, it is a day created for those like me.

The scholar holed up on her couch on sunny days, and rainy days, and winter days, a steaming mug coffee next to her chair.

The teen nerd carrying a paperback into the basketball game because she knows at some point it will get boring.

The young girl sneaking a glance at the book on her lap, hidden under her desk where the teacher will not see it during the math lessen.

The toddler, pulling on her mother’s shirt, Goodnight Moon dangling from her right hand, as she asks to be lulled to dreamland by stories.

Today is for all of you girls.
