I have some bookends on my desk that I love. They hold up two of my most used books . . . Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary and The Synonym Finder by J.I. Rodale. On the top of one bookend are my reading glasses (bright green), and a wooden Christmas ornament—a mouse/nutcracker in the uniform of a band conductor. On top of the other one is a beanbag butterfly in hues of purple and blue I got at the Butterfly Pavilion with my aunt shortly after my mom died.
Did I mention I love these bookends?
The bookend that faces me the most has this quote from Maya Angelou:
Do read to someone. When words are infused by the human voice, they come alive.
Who do you read to?
Do you read your words aloud when you edit?
