As I was reading this afternoon I began to giggle. Not because of the reading matter, but because Penne, Ada and Adelaide were each sitting near my feet, looking up at me with expectant gazes.
I think that they wanted me to read aloud to them, but since my book is a biography of Tom Paine I feared that such reading would incite them to demand some rights, or lapse into deism.
Please send me your suggestions for “reading aloud to animals”. (no not “Animal Farm” for goodness sake!
