These are fantastic, and what a slice of history. How I remember reading my first book, and how I loved reading when I was a child. We used to ride our bikes to the library and fill our baskets full of books.

Cool, I like Trudeau's. Dr. Seuss was a genius you know. Read Dr. Seuss, but also read Kierkegaard. That's the advice of your good friend, Ryan S.
