“Ever since we had arrived in the United States, my classmates kept asking me about magic carpets. ‘They don’t exist’ I always said. I was wrong. Magic carpets do exist. But they are called library cards.”
-Firoozeh Dumas, Laughing Without an Accent
This weekend I did something I haven’t done in a while. I sat down to read a book. Not for work. Not in bits and pieces over a month. Just a library book. Just for me.
