lucky, small bookstores are such a rarity / and thing of the past...

i really hate going into B&N or BOREDerz and the workers almost seem to despise books and reading...     i miss talking to the bookstore person who LOVESSSSSSSSSSSSSSss readding!!

our nation is falling fast... we try and teach our children to read early, it is "encouraged" but there is no where outside of our homes to help promote it more... sad sad sad...  

reading is knowledge , and knowledge is POWER....
