I have always loved to read. Finding a great book that I can’t put down is one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. When you fall deep into a book, you get to know the characters and you feel what they feel. It can be very powerful and moving. I also love to read to my grandchildren. Seeing the excitement in their eyes is magical! Thank you for having a fundraiser like this to encourage young people – and people of all ages – to read.
