The Reading Promise by Alice Ozma

This book was sent to me by BestSellersWorld for review.

Alice and her Dad, Jim, started a reading streak, where he would read to her, that lasted for 3,218 nights. It was difficult at times, but they managed to always find the time to do it.

Jim was an excellent librarian. There was a divorce between him and his wife and Jim was raising two daughters on his own.

Obviously he had a great love for books that he was able to pass on to at least one daughter, Alice.

The chapters are wonderful. Alice gives us the time table and a quote to lead each one. Usually the quote will fit in very nicely with the chapter.

The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We SharedThis book was a pleasure to read and at the end, there is a contract to consider using to promise to read to, read with or just read and to protect that right and pleasure.

This book actually reinforced for me my love and defense of my love of books and all of the pleasure and joy that I feel about books and the learning and fun that they can bring. Joy to Alice Ozma!!!
