I have always loved reading.It allows me to escape to a fantastical universes and take a vacation in an alternate dimension, far away from my Earthly struggles. When I open a book,there are no more hard decisions to make or consequences to face.Inside a book, I can defeat the dragons, spell the evil wizard or even live in Hogwarts.
After the quick reprieve a book can give me,I am ready to fight the monsters of the real world.
My favourite thing about reading a book is when I actually forget that I’m reading it.When I devour words without really being aware of it.
When I’m so lost in the world I’m reading about that I forget I’m not actually there.I hear the voices instead of reading them,I feel the emotions instead of imagining them,I know characters so well that I forget that they’re only words on paper.
I love and hate, I cry and laugh at ink and paper and the most magical thing I live many lives in pages .This is the weirdest and the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced, and because of that I read and read to fill up and live.
If you want to live several lives ,there’s no real secret. It’s about adjusting your priorities and your perception and take your book so that reading becomes an extension of who you are and what you do.
When that happens, you’ll be the person that people now ask: How do you live several lives ?And the answer will be: I just read .!!
The cat has nine lives, but, the person who read, I guess he had a thousand.
