Dear Parental Units,
Today is World Book Day, which, as you can imagine, makes me very happy. And you know what? I have you to thank for a lot of that. You, who always encouraged me to read. You, who gave me books nearly every gift-giving occasion (and then some). You, who read to me countless bedtimes. You, who sponsored me through every read-a-thon (careful not to pledge too much per book for fear of bankruptcy). You, who took me to the library and let me skulk the racks, sit beneath the drop slot and explore the Dewey decimal system.
Thank you, for making books part of my fibre.
