"I think the most powerful gift you can give someone is a book. My mother gave me my first book (Horse Of Course) and taught me to read when I was 4. Since then, books have been my must-have source of inspiration, entertainment, and connection with friends. How do I support my book habit? Through my local library - where all the librarians know me and gather up my giant piles of on-hold books as I walk in the front door. Libraries, quite simply, feed me... I could not exist without them."
