And God bless every single word. However many high tech and multimedia options there are for conveying information and telling stories I will always love the printed page the best. I learned to get lost in a book at a very early age during an otherwise pretty rough working class, provincial childhood in the 1960s. Speaking to you now as an author, editor and academic, I think we can agree that reading certainly improved my life. When I think about it, especially now I’m teaching my own son to read, I’m rather tickled at the thought that everything I know and what I do for a living all flows from teaching myself to read Bottersnikes and Gumbles and Batman comics when I was about the same age that my kid is now.
