Mid-Week Moment of Zen (Featuring Roald Dahl)

Wallace Yovetich grew up in a home where reading was preferred to TV, playing outside was actually fun, and she was thrilled when her older brothers weren’t home so she could have a turn on the Atari. Now-a-days she watches a bit more TV, and considers sitting on the porch swing (with her laptop) “playing outside”. She still thinks reading is preferable to most things, though she’d really like to find out where her mom put that old Atari (Frogger addicts die hard). She runs a series of Read-a-Longs throughout the year (as well as posting fun bookish tidbits throughout the week) on her blog, Unputdownables. After teaching for seven years, Wallace is now an aspiring writer.

and above all, watch
with glittering eyes
the whole world around
you because the greatest
secrets are always hidden
in the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe in
magic will never find it.

– Roald Dahl
