My parents would frisk me before family events. Before weddings, funerals, bar mitzvahs, and what have you. Because if they didn’t, then the book would be hidden inside some pocket or other and as soon as whatever it was got under way I’d be found in a corner. That was who I was…that was what I did. I was the kid with the book.
Neil Gaiman (via booksandnerds)
I always had a book or two stashed in my purse whenever I went anywhere and if the adults didn’t let me sit and talk with them, I’d go read until one of them came over and asked to see what I was reading.
