Re: what are you reading?

Gene, we must be related somehow.
In 3rd grade, my desk was right next to the "library", four short shelves of
books. While the teacher was diverted by classmates, I read them all, at the
expense of basic math skills. I never could stand to stay on the page when
we read aloud.
