For years I was secretly waiting for Rachel to be old enough to read the books I enjoyed as a child. My lifelong love of books is second only to my love for my family. I’m not joking. I like books better than I like most people. When Rachel popped out a natural born bibliophile, I was beside myself with excitement. I could not wait to share all of my old favorites with her. When I think of my childhood, I often think of it in terms of what I was reading at the time. I want Rachel to look back on these reading years with the same fondness that I do. Imagine my delight when I was in Borders the other day and stumbled upon one of my favorite books of all time.
Anyhow, it was a sweet reminiscence. I think I’ll go back and read a few more of my favorite childhood books. Let’s see…what’s next? How about my all time favorite, Little Women?
Stay tuned for my thoughts on Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. Can you guess which character I am most like?
