  1. This conversation reminded me of when I borrowed Grandma Hall's copy of "The Work and the Glory" one summer. There were little pencil check marks everywhere! Sometimes there would be pages or a chapter between check marks, and other pages had a check mark every paragraph or even just a few sentences. I realized that she was reading every chance she got and that she marked the place she ended so she could quickly get back to reading when she had a few minutes to spare. To me, that will always be an example of a reader!
