Does anyone actually remember the time when you first learned your ABC’s and 123’s, spelled your first word, and read a ‘b-o-o-k’?
I’m pretty sure that my love of reading started when I was 3 years old, in a closet at my grandma’s house holding the newest issue of Ranger Rick magazine. The family rumor has it that I wanted to read the magazine so badly I learned to read overnight or something like that.
Regardless of this blurred fact, I have no doubt that from then on, I began a reading love affair into which I can silently glance into the mind of another person, maybe somebody thousands of miles away or somebody who died thousands of years ago or somebody who never existed actually.
If you’ve read this far, the chances are you’re a lover of the printed word and someone who might be excited to know the Brazoria County Library System Foundation annual book sales begins August 9th.
Below is a release with more information from The Brazoria County Library System Foundation:
