My sister-in-law took this picture of my brother, her husband. That’s our grand-nephew cuddled up with a book. (Is grand-nephew the correct term for my sister’s grand-child?)
Now I ask you: Can you get this kind of comfort and closeness with a video, a board game, or a joystick?
Books are the best. Yesterday, I heard that reading alters our state of consciousness in much the same way as mind-altering drugs. Surely, books take us to a whole new dimension. If we’re lucky, we take someone with us.
I feel warm and cozy inside just looking at this scene.
