That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week's theme: Reasons Why I Love Reading!
I didn't try to rank my reasons in any kind of order. And I didn't count them up either. But here they are....some of the reasons why I love to read:
Reading is Magic!
I can experience love, loss, laughter, mystery, suspense, and adventure all in the pages of a book.
Reading lets me escape reality for awhile, and makes having to wait in long lines, or at the doctor's office, or in airports more bearable.
Reading allows me to travel around the world, back in time, to the future, and to imaginary and magical worlds like Narnia and Oz.
Reading expands my vocabulary, introduces me to new thoughts and ideas, and makes me smarter.
I meet the most interesting people in books.
Reading enriches my life.
I love the connections I make with other people who also love to read, especially when we love the same books.
As C.S. Lewis once said, "I read to know that I'm not alone."
Aren't books the best?
