THE READING PROMISE My Father and the Books We Shared

by | Read by Alice Ozma

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Author Alice Ozma reveals the secrets of her “reading streak." She and her father bet they could read together for 100 nights, but they ended up reading for 3,218 consecutive nights, ending when Alice entered college. Her father, school librarian Jim Brozina, narrates the foreword, chapter headings, and book list. Listeners will understand why Alice kept the streak going: His twangy, gnomish voice is enchanting, and he lavishes praise on his daughter and the benefits of reading aloud. Ozma is not a professional narrator, but this story would have less emotional impact without her personal interpretation. Her arch tone effectively illuminates her childhood world, inviting us to remember our own reading odysseys. Through her humorous remembrances, Ozma proves that reading can be a member of the family.
