The Curative Nightly Reading Ritual
Rachael Falis

The family that reads together… (is that how it goes?)

Perk #1 working for book companies is discounts. Sometimes 100% off. Can’t beat it! Perk #2 is meeting sweet authors who personalize a note when they autograph their book. The girls will pick a book from the shelf that’s been waiting for them and they’re greeted with a nice message from the author. How cool is that! Shannon Hale, Rick Riordan, Gordon Korman, Kate DiCamillo are a few favorites. Suzanne Collins not so much. We hosted her as Hunger Games was really taking off and she wouldn’t take time to sign for us. I chose not to buy her books or see the movies. That showed her!
