    I just had a closer look at your loot list and saw Wrinkle in Time! I remember reading that when I was in elementary school. This was the first book that left me devastated when it ended. Even though it resolved happily I wasn’t ready for it to end and when it did I felt so abandoned by my new friends that had shared this amazing with me. They didn’t even say good bye.

    There have been a few years and a many good books since then and I still get that “Oh no…not yet” feeling when I near the end of a book that I’ve connected with.

    Stories may claim to be fiction but our imaginations make them real.

      I remember when you made me read it. I was dead set against it, and I’m pretty sure you promised to buy me a book of my choice (or was it a chocolate bar?) if I didn’t like it. Obviously that didn’t happen. And I know I read it again at least once, maybe twice, after that. Now here I am with my very own copy. It seems you were right about that one.

      I also remember when you tried to get me to read Little Women. That was not as successful ;) I wonder what happened to that set of classics…

    It could be that there are still some of your books in the garage. Or its in the trail of books we’ve left everywhere we’ve been.

    I’m glad I was right about a couple of things…
