I love that quote. It’s so true of reading, not just for kids but for adults too. Taking time from life to read should be a quiet place.

I love Katherine Paterson quotes. 🙂
Is that the secret for writing such amazing books? So simple, yet so difficult to execute. Love that quote. Does every writer need an underscoring inspiration to write?
