Thank you for subscribing to The Magic Lamp

Welcome to The Magic Lamp – my blog about reading and writing

We’ve all heard stories about the magic lamp that releases a genie who grants three wishes.

A good story is like that. It releases a young reader’s mind and holds the power to grant at least three wishes.

There is, for example, the wish for delight—a special kind of “light” that lights up a young person’s world on the inside.

There is the wish for wonder—the view that the world really is a place of magic and mystery in spite all its troubles, tragedies and tediousness.

And there is the wish for imagination—that ability to broaden and deepen and expand the way one sees the world.

In my blog, I do two things:

First, I periodically explore how reading helps to fulfill wishes like these and why that is so important.

Second, I keep you up to date with my books and writerly activities.

Thanks again for signing up. Hope you enjoy it.
