I didn't begin reading seriously and continually until I was 12. & then I discovered archetypes, models of survival and I have since collected and counted and shined them repeatedly. Iown a great many books, more than half of which I've not read. I am not entirely sure I intend reading them, but I am sure that I do not intend not reading them.
They are promises of idyll; and such promises are always welcome on rainy days :-)!
