What should I find atop the book shelf but another Unlikely. I’m a book lover and it seemed that she might be a kindred soul.
Sure enough I soon found out that “Quite” Unlikely had decided to read her way through all the books on the shelves. However, she was worried because some of them might not be of any interest to her at all – or she might not understand them due to their esoteric subject matter. I didn't want to admit to her that I myself had that same thought when I was in high school – to start at the “a's” and work my way through the stacks. Of course it was a short lived dream, as I recall ending somewhere still on the first shelf.
However, I did have an idea for “Quite”. I took out my large dictionary (especially large to her) and sat her down atop it. "If you read this one book, all the way through, its quite likely that you will learn all you need to know".
I left her studying the pages – I do so hope she gets further along than I did in the library.
"The more you read, the more things you will know,
The more you learn, the more places you'll go."
