This will be the first post on my blog that really doesn't pertain to a certain book or genre. This is a post about my love of books and where it stems from.
My imagination is pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. I read books in my head using different voices, seeing characters take shape and how they interact. With a good author, I really feel like I'm watching a movie rather than racing through 400 pages.
I can't go to bed without reading. I can't take a bath without reading. I can't go anywhere with a wait time of more than 10 minutes without taking a book.
Plainly said, reading is my escape. When I have a bad day, I just sit back and immerse myself in someone else's life when I need to get away from my own.
Today has been one of those days, probably what prompted the post.
Off to book land.
