Last year, I spent almost the entire day at the book sale during the VIP day. The love of being with books and seeing so many books plus the joy of looking at people happy, excited and delighted to find the books they have been wanting to buy at a more affordable price. The long lines no care towards the cashier counters (but I hope that won’t be the case anymore this time around) but who really cares when the joy of having many books to read for the coming days during the holiday season plus the joy of gifting it to someone you care and love who you want to share the joy of reading books. Kids should really read more these days. It opens a world of learning and fun imagination that helps heal the pain of loss due to tragedies and disaster.
