A good book lets you escape the harshness of your everyday reality. For a time, you are transported in its pages looking at wonders, having adventures, and discovering worlds. You bear witness to the struggles and the joy, the anguish and the triumph of each beloved character. And you hope as they hoped, believe as they believed, and dream as they dreamed.
“To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.”
– W. Somerset Maugham
