Have been writing lots of reviews ... now I'm (slowly) getting around to sharing them. This is my review of The Boy on the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson.

"What struck me most about the book was not how Mr. Leyson left me feeling even more bitter about what the Nazis did, but how he carried himself ... if he was bitter, it didn't show here."

So beautifully said: "You and I know that reading is bigger than decoding. What I wanted that day was to sit beside her and hear her beautiful voice read the words fluently and have the chance to lose myself in the art. I wanted the warmth of a shared experience, not only an educational one." +Cynthia Lord at the +Nerdy Book Club. http://buff.ly/1kTQckq The Warmth of a Shared Experience by Cynthia Lord
