Day 38/365 ~ We Read to Know We Are Not Alone

January 5, 2011.

Self portrait.


You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney


I love reading but I hate the feeling of never having the chance to meet the characters for the first time ever again. Reading an excellent book is like falling into a beautiful story, getting to know strange and interesting people that somehow manage to share the same character traits, walking on the path of a journey that isn't yours, but lets you know everything about it. Books are friends - friends who don't judge, friends who remain the same, friends who let you know the ending. Having a book in your hand, is akin to holding hands with a dear friend - someone who will never forsake you.
