I am Tahasi  Massk

Books have been a connecting force in our relationship from the beginning. When we were both in school and studying hard, we would take one class together. We would stay up late, each holding one side of a novel while we read. Whoever finished first, would say ‘OK.’ I would know that she was falling asleep, because those were the only times that I got to say ‘OK.’ We still bond over books. When either of us reads, or listens to a book we like, we suggest it to the other. And then we say up late, having wonderful discussions. It doesn’t have to be something earth shattering to make the cut. Lately, even a relatively normal, inauspicious novella generates hours of conversation.
