There are books, and then there are BOOKS. There are readers, and then there are READERS. I am a READER, and I love BOOKS. (And I love books. Why discriminate?)
When I read, the characters and ideas trapped in the pages worm their way into my head and take up residence in a spot I like to think of as “me.” Some ideas and characters just pass through. Others become permanent residents who have opinions on things like my taste in curtains, how the furniture is arranged, and what is served for dinner. These are the BOOKS that have re-directed and shaped the course of my life.
