It is called The Museum of The First Read Book. I beg all my friends to send me their exhibits. Mine is Mache, the duck in sandals, a very well designed book about a ruffled boy who sleeps at the shadow of a tree. The Duck, Mache stole his sandals and flatters with them on the woof. I will continue with The Museum of the First Watched Movie. Two Times Lotte, a directed film about twins. I do not remember it clearly but I know that my father forgot his briefcase and my boots in the balcony. They were the first and the last that he bought for me, poor him.
