Reading is a big part of my life…

Jun 03

I am unabashedly in love with books, literature, well-written characters, the written word…for me reading is more than just a hobby, it is a way of life. I wish I could extract just the tiniest portion of my love and enthusiasm for reading and inject it in all children and young adults to inoculate them from apathy and atrophy of creativity, of well-developed thought. If but for the possibilities of inspiring the twitter generation to pick up a book and use it for anything but a door stop. I eagerly give books as gifts to people of all ages and promote my love without shame!

Do you?

Books are the only things that contain the whole of life… binded pages of everything that is real. A photograph, an artist, a song can capture but one moment, one freeze frame but a book… a book can contain the secrets of passion, the deep bonds of family, the rejection, the glee—-life encompassed attached to the spine no matter its title. You can learn lessons, words, ways to communicate, ways to love… escape routes and answers to befuddled questions… you can gain a world of knowledge within a book… experience an entirely different life or exactly the same! You can take adventures or sit quietly on a hammock and observe a moment so profound you will never be the same again.

So what are you waiting for? GO! Grab a book… pick it up… and experience it as if it were your own story… or be brave and write yours for the world of book and life lovers to ingest…
