It took me a moment to find my voice, and when I did, I couldn't stop grinning. "OK. Where are we going?" It was cold enough that I knew it had to be close; we couldn't stay out here much longer.
Sam's fingers were laced tightly with mine. "To a Grace-shop first. That's what a gentleman would do."
"This is a Grace-shop, right?" Sam pushed open the door without waiting for my answer. A wonderful wave of new-book smell came rushing out, reminding me immediately of Christmas. My parents always got me books for Christmas. With a melodic ding, the shop door swung shut behind us, and Sam released my hand. "Where to? I'll buy you a book. I know you want one."
My eyes followed the rows and rows of books. "Books are more real when you read them outside."
