This week, I'm talking about the first book I remember reading. I was surrounded by many Dr. Seuss books growing up, but I distinctly remember reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. I remember making my parents read it to me over and over again until I could finally read it myself, more from memory than from actually reading.
For this reason, Dr. Seuss has always been dear to my heart. Imagine how elated I was to learn that the library at the University of California in San Diego where I went to school was named Geisel after Theodore Geisel, Dr. Seuss' given name. It's an amazing and peculiar building, which does its name justice. The building also goes underground, but it's not dark down there. There are these things that look like shards of glass sticking out of the ground which are actually skylights for the lower levels. Cool, huh?
