Regardless what Execupundit thinks, I have a love of books going back to my mom reading to me when I was little. My earliest memories are summer days lying on the brand new AC vents in our house (Air conditioning was new then), and reading my latest group of books from the local library. I spent a lot of time playing ball outdoors; but, my best times were with the books. Being trapped in my den at home for a month has reintroduced me to the hundreds of books strewn about the room, and, when I saw this Carl Sagan quote, I had to share it. Now, go read a book.
