Today I was asked by a non reader why I enjoy reading so much. Before I realized it, I was giving the same answer my momma used to give me when I was little and would ask her the same thing. I read because through the pages of a book you can be anyone, go anywhere and experience anything.
In this crazy world that we live in, who wouldn’t want to escape the day to day monotony of work, or school. The violence and hatred on the news is sickening. With books we can escape all of that for a bit and immerse ourselves in a world where bad things are made okay by a happy ending.
Reading has always been my go to escape from reality. In a weird way, books have made me who I am.
