Un padre e una figlia, si ripromettono di leggere, tutte le sere prima di mezzanotte, qualche pagine di un libro..I libri faranno da collante tra questi due affetti, un modo per stare insieme, per conoscersi meglio, un attimo, che resterà per sempre nella loro vita...
Leggere non è mai una perdita di tempo, condividerli con gli altri...è il massimo..!!

This is a really good book. It is written so well and describes the relationship between a father and a daughter. ( )

This book was a complete disappointment. From the reviews and the book illustration, I thought this was going to be about...books! Instead it's a memoir of the author's meaningful life events. The further the book goes along and the older the author gets, there's more about the author's life and less about the books read. It's pretty frustrating, because there was a lot of potential to weave in more of the literature they read to the story.

Skip it. Don't bother borrowing it from the library. ( )

A warm, tender and at times silly book. Best read slow, a chapter or two at a time.

An appreciation of reading, how it shapes, forms and strengthens life. ( )

I had seen this on my library shelves in biography section and kept telling myself I'd grab it one day and read it...finally Christmas break allows me the luxury! Definitely shelved in right spot --its a memoir more than anything else.
When Alice was in fourth grade, she and her elementary librarian father agreed to have him read aloud to her for 100 days... when that was completed, they decided to keep going - for over 1000 days! The book chronicles vignettes or snapshots of Alice's life (grade school until college days) and her enjoyment of literature with her father, as they navigate his divorce, and his raising two daughters as a single dad, and the ups and downs of a teen girl's life.
Enjoyed it immensely - hoped for more commentary about the books they found most important, or meaningful? - but it was still a loving tribute to a man committed to a promise, a promise he and his daughter kept, to join together over the printed word, a book, every day. ( )

It started out as an ambitious, but achievable, task. A father would read to his nine-year-old daughter 100 nights in a row. Celebrating their victory over breakfast at their favorite greasy spoon, however, the daughter proposed a new challenge, one with a Scheherazadean twist. Why not read for 1,000 nights? But Jim Brozina and his daughter Alice didn't stop at 1,000, just like they didn't stop when Alice's mother ended the marriage, or when her older sister went abroad for a year, or when Alice went to the prom. Only one thing could terminate their routine. When Jim moved Alice into her dorm room, some 3,218 nights later, the Streak, as they called it, came to an end. Ozma has written a memoir as rich and revealing, witty and warm, confident and compassionate as works by people who may have been around a few more blocks but who probably haven't read as many books.

Foreword: One warm night in the summer of 1998 I returned from taking a friend and her daughter to a concert in Philadelphia to find my own daughter Alice hopping up and down in the driveway like a madwoman, waving her arms and screaming.
It started on a train.
