I love the idea that words can take you to another place.
Reading a book takes you into a completely different world, a world where you forget all your troubles.
Where you can live the characters’ lives, feel their sadness, share their happiness and grieve their losses.
You are transported to a few blissful moments in another universe.
You are completely and utterly content in a world where your problems do not exist, where you do not exist.
Every page turn engulfs your spirit and the eagerness to continue on pulls you in deeper until you no longer feel alone.
Every word speaks to you as you allow yourself to descend into the depths of the pages, unwilling to return back into the real world.
And before you know it, the last page interrupts your time of contentment and returns you back to reality allowing you to explore once more.
