Why I read . . .Books are simply magic. They can whisk you away to places you’ve never been, introduce you to fascinating people, and take you on wild adventures. They are an escape when we are down; they are sometimes even a lifeline when we are faced with difficult times in life. They’re also the reason I was never banned from a school, or a doctor’s office, and so forth—whatever book I was reading at the time kept me from getting rude or violent while waiting hours after an appointed time.
Seriously—reading has always been my salvation!
