"'I never thought I'd hate to leave New York, but I do. I feel an unaccustomed sorrow not to be able to continue our friendship viva voce, and in the flesh, but these are the chances of life. But there is a deeper and happier chance which will keep us friends till death, don't you believe? And we'll walk and talk again. Till then, Ken.' A postscript followed: 'Meanwhile there are letters."
Books. What a gift they are. They can transport us to other worlds, enrich our minds, lift our souls. Connect us to others. I am so thankful for them.
