All the roads not taken
It's impossible to get through all the books you'd like in just four years. For the past few days, I've been working on a tbr shelf for my son--the books set aside for others, but ones just as deserving of an opportunity to deepen, or challenge, or change his life.
He'll have to decide when the time is right for them and all the others that he'll encounter throughout his years.
He is, of course, ready to make those decisions on his own, without a shelf put together by mom, but where's the photo-op in that kind of attitude?
Good old patient wait-for-you books.
