The Gift of Reading by Michael Omara books

I received this little book as a gift. It is full of fun reading related facts and anecdotes. Super cute.

And here is one of the anecdotes:

The thirtieth President of the United States, John Calvin Coolidge, loved reading but when his wife was persuaded to buy a very expensive medical almanac from a traveling salesman one day, he was less than impressed, and pretended not to notice the book. Several days later, when Mrs Coolidge opened it up, she noticed that her husband had written inside: “This work suggest there is no cure for a sucker.”
