Gerry´s Booktalk

A few decades back when I was a 16 year old sudent in highschool, our civics teacher gave each one of us students a book. They were about 28 kids in the class and he gave us all a paperback book about Mayor Daily of Chicago. Then he talked to us about personal libraries and encouraged all of us to start one. Think it's a safe bet that I am the only kid that still has that book untold decades later. Back in December we had a sale offering a big discount, if you bought 5 books and an even bigger discount if you bought 10 books. One of the things I really enjoyed about that sale was seeing young people buying 10 books at a time and knowing that they either intentionally or inadvertedly had purchased the nucleous of a personal library.
