Had I known this wasn‘t the original version, I would have held out for the hardcover book. The author deemed some of the language he used in the original as making parents and teachers “uncomfortable” and watered down his writing for younger readers. Uncomfortable is a part of people‘s lives. Period.

$6 for these beauties. Building an area in my office with books kids can take home and keep after our session for the little book lovers. Library sales are a favorite place to look for books 📚 A few of the adult books looked lonely so I saved them too.

As a kid, I heard far too much, “Why is your nose always in a book?”

My standard reply was “I like to read,” because I didn‘t have the bravery or words to share the above reason.

Her expression at the end is all of us when we hear stupid questions like that:

“Don‘t you have enough books?”
“Aren‘t you already reading something?”
“Maybe we should worry about rent instead of the new book releases?”
“How much longer are you going to look at books?”
“Are all these books truly necessary?”
