    Loved these. I would so like an extra day for reading. I often go in my room to read to escape a TV show or a blaring podcast! I think a house filled with books is a real comfort!

    I love that you included a Lemony Snicket quote! Daniel Handler always has the most interesting things to say about books and reading, and he’s definitely not wrong about this either.
