I'm not thinking reading to your kids here. I'm thinking more like reading out loud to a group of friends, or to the person you love. Let's say you're on a date and your date says, "I love hearing your voice. Will you read to me? Something that's close to your heart."
The passages could be moving, exciting, dramatic, romantic, poignant. They could be from your favorite novel, essay, or book of poems. The kind of thing you keep on your bedside table and come back to over and over again. What would you choose?
