Sam and I started reading this in the summer of 2003. We take turns reading to each other. I don't think you can ever get too old for reading out loud. There is something really nice, charming, and romantic about hearing someone read to you. Yes, it's embarrassing that 6 years later and we haven't even finished it. I think this will be the year though! I will be sad when we finish it. It's a great book. Maybe we'll have to read it again. For some reason we always pick it up again, only reaching for it in the summertime. Do you have any summertime books?
