I love books. I don't hide that fact. My most prized books are a set from my great aunt, Juanita. Beautifully bound and showing a bit of wear from age, but most importantly, well read. I'd like to think about her reading the same pages that I now read. I love seeing her notes in the margins. I never met her, but I feel like I knew her through these items and small evidences that she once lived, learned, and loved.
