jaylake finds things on the web so I don't have to (most days), but today, his link to this video really caught me.  It's about the best fifteen minutes I've spent watching anything on my computer in maybe forever.

If you love books.  If you think reading is important.  If you're sentimental.  Watch!

Loved it.
I'm a weeper as well. Got teary eyed at the end. I love to read. I got the whole story. Sadly more and more young people are glued to there phones texting or facebooking into the wee hours of the night. Not my children. I'm going to make sure they love books like I did. I went on so many adventures as a kid and no movie has ever come close to recreating that. Well, Lord Of The Rings almost did. But I never read those books. I did read the Hobbit as 12 year old and loved every minute of it. Hopefully since its been 22 years since I've read it I will get to enjoy the movie coming out.

    LOL. My journals are almost as dusty. I still get the urge to log stuff in them, but it seems that time and energy are ever-lacking resources that keep me from it.

    Congratulations on all your sales.…

    Can you tell me how to get in touch with the artist. I would like to use a copy on some t-shirts as a prize for a kids fishing derby.

    I was excited when I googled Adie Gladieux and got a hit that led me to your article. My 92 year old father passed away the day after Christmas. He had talked of two good friends he had in the army…

    You're welcome. It was a journey, for sure.

    My next con is WorldCon in Kansas City, I think.
