It is nice to have a grandmother who understands my love of literature. While visiting her in Ohio this past weekend she handed this to me and said, "Look what I found for you in a book. I thought you might appreciate what is says."

"I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgment dawns--the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say when he sees us coming with our books under our arms, 'Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading.'" ~Virginia Woolf

Grandmother also loves reading. I picked up a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks at one of my favorite bookstores, in Ohio, and she asked to keep it until I come back. She started it Saturday evening. This morning she calls my mum, "Oh, tell Maddie I finished her book yesterday."

If only I could read that fast! :) #grandmothers   #books   #quotes   #bookmarks   #virginiawoolf
