The Gift of a Book

When someone gives you a book it means they trust you enough to invite you into their world; they believe in your imagination and they’ve gifted you a passport to explore.

When someone gives you a book it might mean they believe in your future. It could mean they want you to read in between the lines.

When someone gives you a book, they’re adding to your collection of knowledge and time. It means they believe you’re worth the read.

When someone gives you a book they are giving you the gift of all time. They understand that stories live on forever; and have gifted you a faithful friend.

When someone gives you a book it means they share thoughts and ideas close to your own it. It could mean ‘I see you.’ and ‘I feel you.’ – or perhaps – “I am you.”

When someone gives you a book, they care about your time and how you spend it; they want you to know that it’s words and time, literally the *thought* that always counts.

When someone gives you a book, you should really thank them.
Because when someone gives you a book they are telling you they love you.

And the size of the heart of a person who chooses to give you a book – will almost always match the adventure between its covers.
