Happy New Year – Happy Reading 2012

For the last couple of New Years we have found these words from Neil Gaiman on several blogs and websites.  They are from New Year’s Eve message shared in Boston some years ago and seems appropriate to share:

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. May your coming year be a wonderful thing in which you dream both dangerously and outrageously.

I hope you will make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and you will be liked and you will have people to love and to like in return. And most importantly, because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now – I hope that you will, when you need to, be wise and that you will always be kind. And I hope that somewhere in the next year you surprise yourself.”

We appreciate his message.  We too hope you do wonderful things in this new year – things that excite you and bring you wonder and joy!  Especially… read GREAT books!
