Tracy Chevalier

I read because I want to know what it’s like to look at the world through someone else’s eyes, and reading is a remarkably efficient and vigorous way of doing that. With other media like film and television we are more passively fed another’s vision. A book actively engages my imagination in creating and exploring other worlds, and it makes me feel I have experienced much more than I really have. I have to read; if I don’t it makes me feel like I haven’t brushed my teeth.
