Booking Through Thursday
Can you imagine NOT being a Reader? How does it shape your life? Your perception of it?
How does being a Reader affect your relationship with all those folks who are looking at it from the other side and simply can’t understand how you can sit and READ all the time?
I cannot imagine not being a reader. Sometimes it feels like I've always read, from the second I was born. I've met people who go their entire lives without immersing themselves in books and for me it's like looking at an alien species. How do they make it through their days? How can they not long to feel the kind of connection, of wonder, a book brings? I mentioned last week that I suffer from severe depression and the only thing that sometimes brings me any comfort at all are books. The beauty and wonder of words.
