Why Read?

There is magic in reading!

And Knowledge.

And Adventure.

And Excitement.

And Fun.

There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on Treasure Island and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life

I love books. I always have. I remember my mom taking me to the library as a young child and checking out as many books as I could. And then going back the next week and doing the same.  And the next … and on and on.

There is rarely a day gone by that I haven’t read something.

I love the feeling of being whisked away to a new place or time. I laugh and cry and yell out in anger or delight as the characters move through life. 

Their lives become a part of mine and in doing so I am able to experience far more than I could have on my own.

So why should we read?

Books can help us learn new and exciting things, can calm us during times of stress, and give us hours of enjoyment. 

Whether we read for fun, to be uplifted, or to gain knowledge, books can stretch the bounds of our intellect and imagination and give us so much more than just the words written on the pages. They can give us hope, love, a sense of being, and triumph.
