This Book Is Alive!

Of course all books are alive. Why would you ever think otherwise?

And this book would be honored to be invited into your home, be grateful for your hospitality, and truly treasure your companionship.

After all, the one thing all books have in common (besides being alive) is that they want to be opened, read, considered—all the better if they’re also loved, respected, or even recommended.

And if this book manages to brighten your day, make you smile, or remind you how great it is just to be alive—and reading—well then, you might become this book’s most favorite reader of all.
