Has this ever happened to you?

September 29, 2013, Posted by Donna at 6:14 pm

I have loved books ever since I was a kid. I remember sprinting down the block to get to the Bookmobile in time to check out a new book. Or snuggling up on these whistle shaped chairs in our school library to read during our library time. And I distinctly remember my family members reading [...]
