My adult daughter, an avid reader, was struck with an unknown brain virus 6 years ago. She can no longer read more than a sign or a headline.

She is now too disabled to use a CD player or a tape recorder to listen
to books. And too impulsive to listen to a machine reading to her if someone else turns it on.

So, I read to her. Usually a couple of chapters at a time. Reading aloud takes so much more time than silent reading, so a book takes a long time.

We all need to be grateful for our skills while we have them. They could disappear in an instant.
