    Awesomely awesome. Books were and are my life’s blood. As a child I had almost no hearing until the 4th grade. I lived and breathed through books, so of course I grew up with a deep love of them. This reblog is wonderful, thank you so much!

          With the level of obsession I see on WordPress, I don’t think you will feel alone again! Life is okay but a book is better.
