Swiss Family Robinson,
and Nancy Drew
they were just the beginning
to my love of books and hours
blissfully reading under the covers
with a flashlight until caught.
Just one more chapter......
We didn't have a TV in our house until I was 10.
We weren't missing anything as our parents had
a room we called the library as it had shelves and shelves
of books for us to read. The only reason they got a TV
was because Queen Elizabeth was being crowned
and that was an important event that we should not miss!
To this day all of us are still voracious readers as are
all of our children. Our parents gave us such a gift;
the joy of reading. We were very lucky.
