I freely admit it. There are lots of things going on at the library that I don't know anything about. Mostly, I'm ok with that.

If reading is not acquired on society's schedule, these suddenly disinherited children will never feel the same about themselves. They will have learned they are different, and no one ever tells them that evolutionarily, this might be for a good reason."
