“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea.” - Roald Dahl
A bit of advice for those thinking of getting this book, and this applies to the hardcover edition, if you like pitch dark when sleeping, be warned. The book glows in the dark. My bedroom is stacked with books and this one sticks out in the dark when the binding emits its yellow glow. It's very amusing to see it glowing. It's like a reminder that you have to finish reading it. However, I've had to place the book in a drawer so I'm not distracted by it when trying to sleep.
Going to finish the book today.
