Reader recommendation: The Reading Promise

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

In The Reading Promise, Alice Ozma shares the highlights of her unique relationship with her father, a school librarian who read to her every night for 3,000 nights – until the day she left for college. This book had us laughing out loud and sometimes close to tears. (Yes, we read it to each other.)
