I took to books at an early age and can still remember my father reading J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit to me at bedtime.

She tells me, that I would look at the covers and say “not interested”, but if she left them on my night stand I couldn’t help, but devour them—the genres and titles didn’t seem to m ...more
