One of my very favorite things in this world is reading. To me, there is nothing better than escaping into a book that I can’t put down. I don’t have a favorite genre, or a preferred author, or any of those things….I just love the feel of a book in my hands, opening up to where I left off, and jumping back into the story.
I’ve always felt a certain sadness for those who don’t enjoy reading, or who haven’t had the opportunity to learn to read. On the other hand, didn’t someone say that those who are truly happy in this life don’t read much, because they don’t feel the need to escape this world? Or some such thing. I tend to agree with that, as I’ve never really felt like I’ve gotten the hang of how to be here, how to live this life. I mostly just want to escape from it into books and movies and music; I often have to consciously remind myself to engage in life, and with other people, rather than turn away from them, as I so often do.
Yay books! Yay for escaping from the visceral terror of this so-called reality!
