I was really touched to get a letter from a woman who is a reading volunteer at a nursing home. She had read my book to an elderly woman and had taken the time to get in touch to tell me how much they had both enjoyed the book. As always it was wonderful to hear from a reader (two in this case) but I was more touched by the work that she did. For those of us who love to read, the idea of not being able to do it is unthinkable. Sadly many people in nursing homes face this reality and it is only through the generosity of volunteers that they get to continue to enjoy books. So I huge thank you to all those who give their time in this way, you truly are awesome.
