But that doesn't make their books any less magical, or meaningful. That's the great thing about literature that touches your heart or makes you think--it's ageless. Which is something I remember when I pull out The Sun Also Rises or Tender Is The Night for like the four thousandth time.
Books have the ability to take you on a time travel--and not only when they really are about A Wrinkle In Time. When you re-read a favorite book you are magically transported back to the time you first met those characters. The first time you felt their pain, or celebrated their successes, or snuck a peek at the last chapter to make sure things turned out okay in the end. It's a magic that can't be found in a movie, or on TV. Sometimes a favorite smell has a similar power, but not in the same way.
I'm sure everyone has that one or two books that bring them they same such joy. And I hope you will take the time to re-read those books over this holiday break.
Sending you love, light, and joy for the next decade! (although I promise to post here a lot sooner than 2029!)
