This is sad. A house without books is not complete. My maternal grandfather worked for the county library for a few years and had a branch library on the back porch when my mother was growing up. That instilled a love in reading in her that she passed on to her three sons. I pity the younger generations who are growing up with screens rather than a good solid book which provides a tactile sensation as the pages turn and the smell of ink on paper. We passed our love of reading on to the next generation as my nephew is another avid reader and a developing writer.
