It was so much fun and very rewarding to hear from so many people during our Celebrating Women event! Today I have to get my head wrapped around some serious work. This post is short and sweet but the message resounds.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.
Charles W. Eliot (1834 – 1926), The Happy Life, 1896
Whether we are talking about print or electronic these days, nothing diminishes the importance of books. This is my favourite video at the moment. Enjoy!
I first saw it on this awesome website Reading is Fundamental and hope you will find a few minutes to go there yourself. Children and books: spreading the word and helping to make it happen is the least we can do.
