Very pleasant correspondence. It's a shame that these kind of letters are a thing of the past... or at least I can't imagine someone writing emails back and forth with a person who works at amazon! haha! ;)

Jane Smiley
“Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.”
Jane Smiley, Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Novel

“For me, literacy means freedom. For the individual and for society.”
LeVar Burton

Melissa Hart
“Rain in the Northwest is not the pounding, flashing performance enjoyed by the eastern part of the nation. Nor is it the festive annual soaking I'd been used to in Southern California. Rather, it's a seven-month drizzle that darkens the sky, mildews the bath towels, and propels those already prone to depression into the dim comforts of antihistamines and a flask.”
Melissa Hart, Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family

Maya Angelou
“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.”
