Sunday Inspiration: The Greatest Gift

Literary lots

“The greatest gift is the passion for reading.
It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites,
it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.
It is a moral illumination.”

― Elizabeth Hardwick

    My passion is reading and I miss reading Emilie’s newsletter. Is she still writing?

    Hi Jean!

    We moved in May and I’ve been busy settling into our NY cottage before we move permanently to NC. So it’s been crazy, but I’ll do another newsletter before the end of summer. And I am working, slowly, on another novella collection. Thanks for missing me.

    So true!
    Have a great Sunday, Emilie and Proman!

    That quote pretty much says it all!
    I’m so grateful for my love of reading.
