I've loved reading ever since being a toddler. Reading erases the pains of life and takes us to a place of other feelings and thoughts...
It can mean the difference between life and death. Hate and revenge vs love and patience.
Books can tear through the souls and leave an empty hole.
They can wind one up and make them feel as though the world is safe and calm and all is free from fear.
It can make them safe to snuggle down in bed with a loved one, whether they are there or not.
Books can teach through the most atrocious of ways, by believing what another person says. Trusting what another author can write is invincible to most but most especially to me whom had to live with two of the worst liars and abusers in the world. One was a parent the other a sibling, from a family i was adopted into.
Often i wanted to forget where i was and why. And books led me astray, took me places i never believed i could be.
Books allowed me to believe in happiness and love of all things -- in immeasurable ways.
Books are absolutely priceless.
So, thank you for reading. I hope we always do.
