Books

I read books.  Well I CAN read books.  I should read books.  I'm trying to read books.  I watch too much TV and play too many computer games.  Went to the library today, I started Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (I've already read book #1).  I LOVE the dedication in this book, makes me tear up a little and smile alot...

"To Lucy Barfield
I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books.  As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still.  But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.  You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it.  I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand, a word you say, but I still shall be
Your affectionate Godfather
CS Lewis"

Never too old for fairy tales....

Ugh, that always makes me want a godfather! An old, British, godfather who is also a literary big deal. So lovely.
