I know Charlotte’s Web isn’t most people’s idea of a love story, although it’s definitely a classic. I thought of Atlas Shrugged, The Thorn Birds, Bright Flows the River, The Prince of Tides, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover, but I don’t have easily accessible hard copies of those.
Then I had an inspiration – I live with children, after all, and we have many childrens’ books still in residence. My first thought was The Velveteen Rabbit, which is my personal favorite, but I encountered Charlotte’s Web first. It was my son’s favorite story, and his favorite movie, when he was about seven. He’s fourteen now, and, after I opened to the random page, he chose the sentences I shared with you.
