      I absolutely agree, Katherine. Some kids aren’t even ready in 1st grade. Pushing just gives them the idea that they can’t read or aren’t very good at it.

      That makes me so happy – that you like this feature and missed it, I mean! And yes, books are indeed fairy dust. They can make almost any day a little better!

      I put this feature on hold while I was away during the holidays, but I’ll try to make it a weekly or at least biweekly feature now that things are getting back to normal. Glad you like it!

      They’re money losers for the authors, at least! They do seem to be on the rise, as are music subscription services like Pandora and Spotify (also not money makers for the artists, according to several of my musician friends as well as Taylor Swift, who pulled her music from Spotify.)

      Re your review of the new Veronica Mars mystery: I never saw the TV show, but you make me want to try the book series!
