      The passage in today's excerpt asking the reader to read quickly and consider the meaning of the passage was a wonderful exercise for me, because it called to mind many of the enchanting books I read as a child that transported me to other worlds. There is so much truth to Emily Dickinson's poem, "There is no frigate like a book." I taught remedial and developmental reading in high school, and sadly, often had students who could not enjoy the reading material that I had found so engrossing at their age. Telling them to "try to have a dialogue with the author," and giving them the skills to do so, often (but not always) resulted in frustration for both of us. I can't imagine spending free time without a book.
