I have a theory.
I was at MPH bookstore the other day in search of Coelho’s titles when I caught a voice behind me. A dad was telling off his son (son’s age around 5 years old) for browsing a book at the fiction lot.
Why are you holding that book? You know how to read it?? Put it back… wait until you know how to read… only then we’ll come back to it.
Do you think the son would someday return to the book he was holding in his hands once he knows how to read?
