My Mother Gloria Hipgrave Bell was a life long avid reader and she instilled the love of reading in me. From my earliest memories she was reading to me and then as I grew, she was always taking me to the library to borrow books to be enjoyed. As time passed my Mother enrolled me in a monthly book club and I was always thrilled to receive my selection in the mail. She opened the world and all its possibilities to me through reading and I will always be grateful to her for that. I enjoyed instilling a love for reading in my two children as they were growing up and now I enjoy to encourage this same love for books with my three amazing grandchildren. A gift of books is always included every Christmas. I am so happy to say they too love their books!
