The act of reading ... begins on a flat surface, counter or page, and then gets stirred and chopped and blended until what we make, in the end, is a dish, or story, all our own.
— Adam Gopnik

How time flies, Audrey...I was reading Dear Mrs Bird last summer but it doesn't feel like a year has passed since then.

Thank you for visiting!
