Quote of the Day

Can you remember a book that swept you away to another time and place with its words? The Hobbit is one that did that for me. To Kill a Mockingbird put me in Alabama in the 1930s. When I read a Charles Dickens novel, I joyfully travel to nineteenth century England and become immersed in the society, the culture, and the interactions of fascinating characters that Dickens brings to life.
As Emily Dickinson knew, the words in books can take us to places that enthrall us, excite us, and fascinate us. Through books we meet people who have changed the world. We read stories that teach us the heights and depths of human behavior.
