I LOVE reading and do it every chance I get. I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It was a very thought provoking book that showed both the beautiful and ugly sides of the human race. This book amplified the important role words play in our lives. Words create messages that move people to do great things, good and bad. Words, like pictures, are precious gifts. The question is if the above picture captures one word is it still worth a 1000?? Hmmm.
