All morning I struggled with the sensation of stray wisps of one world seeping through the cracks of another. Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you? You leave the previous book with ideas and themes — characters even — caught in the fibers of your clothes, and when you open the new book, they are still with you.

    Of course! That is a constant when transitioning from one book to the next. My preschools feel it, too.

      Every time we take up a book, so much plays into our reading… from the book we last finished or the the movie we just saw to the things going on in our lives. I love those resonances that make our interpretations unique.
