Read, Read more, we’re constantly exhorting kids, sometimes accompanied by the promise that the more they read, the more successful they will be in life.

I wrote this letter to a nephew in response to a message he left on Facebook for me. After writing and reading it, I noticed that its message of love is applicable to almost everyone. So I decided to submit it for publication.
