Quotes to remember:

“One of the dads at a homeschool conference came up to me and told me that family book club night is his favorite night of the entire month. He tries to get off a little bit early, he knows that there’s going to be something fun … even if he didn’t actually participate in the reading itself the conversation at the table and the shared experience were so delightful, he told me those are his favorite days of the month to come home from work.” – Sarah Mackenzie

“Every once in a while I find a book and I do a deep dive, by which I mean, I read this thing forever, over and over again, every night for literally years. Alice through the Looking Glass became the most important book in my life as a reader from the ages of about (whatever that was) 11 or 12 to when I was 19, I read Alice through the Looking Glass every single night. I couldn’t sleep unless I read part of that book.” – Jonathan Auxier
