Although I feel like the odd duck, there's one thing that I don't have in common with most bloggers: I am not an avid reader. However, I have been striving to become one, primarily via Maud Hart Lovelace's timeless classics. Currently I'm nibbling through "Betsy Was a Junior," and if you were here, you could find me reading everywhere. In the perfect branch of my favorite tree, on my bed by twinkle light, tucked in my favorite nook of the roof.
I'm not exactly sure why I like these books as much as I do. Maybe it's because they've shaped my childhood, ever since my mother read me "Betsy-Tacy" when I was four. Maybe it's because some of the stories made me laugh until my sides hurt. Or maybe it's because all of the characters have something that I don't have: a tight-knit community of co-ed friends, in a time where picnics, parties on the lawn, and singing around the piano were everyday occasions. Either way, they'll keep me on my way to being avid about books.
