My childhood reading had a huge impact on me, and I think in many ways set me on a course to work in publishing…Part of the joy of the nighttime reading ritual was selecting and discussing the books with Mom. So it was when I was very little that I started to understand the pleasure that comes not just from reading books, but also from choosing them and talking about them. And that’s really what publishers do – find and spread the word about books they love.”
