At the beginning of the year, I never thought I would come to enjoy something so much. I never thought I could be so inspired. You’ve done so much for me, and it means so much. Without you, I wouldn’t have started reading. When I open a book, it’s like I’m in a whole new world, nothing else matters. I’d never been to this new world until this year. I love reading because of you. You’ve made such an impact on me and I’m going to miss you so much. You can count on the fact that I will be visiting you any chance I get next year. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and I hope you teach so many more people to love reading as much as I do.

Love, Alex L.
