The Blind Side (notes)

There were tiny revelations that had Leigh Anne upset for days, for what they implied about his (Michael Oher's) childhood. She took Michael with her and Sean Junior to a Barnes & Noble. As they walked through the store, Sean Junior spotted Where the Wild Things Are and said, "Look, Mom, you used to read that to me when I was little." To which Michael replied, in the most detached tone, "I've never had anyone read me a book." p78

This passage from The Blind Side by Michael Lewis pulls at my maternal instincts. I just want to run out in the street and grab some unsuspecting child and read to him/her!
