Re: Harry Potter Garden--OT Books and the imagination.

I know it - that just amazes me. I always had a book in my hand even
when I was young. Of course I was reading Homer at 10 and Shakespeare at
12, only because that's what was in the house. I still can't get enough
reading time in to suit me!! I feel badly for anyone who doesn't share
in the wonder of reading!!
