We are having fun, dancing and talking books that continue to amuse, astound, and amaze us with wonder, imagination, humor, insights and illuminations into our lives and the lives of others, famous or otherwise.
Always and forever I hope that kind of magic in a book will be an indelible piece of childhood for all the beautiful Diane’s Books children. After all, you can always find Narnia behind the wardrobe, in your imagination, no matter how old you are!
The magic of books and children is on my mind this Holiday Season 2013 and so is KINDNESS. The Dazzling Diane’s Books Divas and I have made it our fall mantra and so it was interesting for me to read that novelist George Saunders singled out kindness in his recent convocation address to the Class of 2013 at Syracuse University. Here is some of what he said:
“Do all the other things, the ambitious things — travel, get rich, get famous, innovate, fall in love, make and lose fortunes — but as you do to the extent that you can, err in the direction of kindness.”
And how I love my Diane’s Books Dazzling Divas and thank each and every one of them for another dazzling year and their incredibly hard work and caring. I also want to thank each and every one of you amazing and loyal customers who share our passion and our joy and our sheer pleasure in a book, A BOOK!
We have many traditions at Diane’s Books but the one that means the most to me is our annual Diane’s Books Angel Program. Our recipients are children, in Greenwich, who perhaps have never owned a book before, who perhaps have never had the opportunity to be read to, or to have someone encourage them to fall into a book!
We take great pride in delivering more than 400 books every holiday season — individually chosen, individually wrapped. Please be a Diane’s Books Reading Angel! Many thanks to all of you who so generously donate every year. We are changing lives, one book at a time.
