On Being a Reader -- Jim Trelease

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/293525.html

You become a reader because you saw and heard someone you admired enjoying the experience, someone led you to the world of books even before you could read, let you taste the magic of stories, took you to the library, and allowed you to stay up later at night to read in bed.
                                 ~ Jim Trelease (20th century). The New Read-Aloud Handbook, Ch. 1 (1985).
