HAPPY BOOK LOVER'S DAY
I have loved words and books since I can remember. I spoke before I walked , and one of the fondest memories of my childhood ( and my dad, who I lost way too early) was of being propped up in my bed each night with a book, while his voice played on a tape recorder stored beneath my bed reading me the story.
He worked nights when I was very young and this was his way of tucking me in.
Growing up, I don't remember going anywhere without a book, and while I have become a less voracious reader of late (thanks internet!) I still read as often as I can. My greatest joy is that I passed on that love of reading to my son who, like me, actually heard the words "No we are not going to the bookstore today" because he'd quickly burned through the last book we'd bought . No visit home from Grad School is complete w/out a stop ( or several) to Barnes and Noble or the Amazon brick and mortar bookstore we have here.
No surprise then that my BFF is also a voracious reader. This woman goes through books like I go through craft supplies. Non-stop! I made this "Book Lover's Day" printable w/ her in mind and using a quote from one of my favorite authors:

To quote one of my favorite characters, Albus Dumbledore, created by the phenomenal JK Rowling:
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
