I love books. Entertainment of the written word. Books take you places, not dissimilar to walking, if you'll remember. They occupy you with the troubles of someone else's life and allow you to escape your own, if only for a little while.
Books.. they don't leave you for other people. The story is yours until you wish it otherwise. Unfinished books can even be left to the hands of you imagination.
Although books appear to be, often, rather straightforward, and a salvation when everything else in life is not, if you look hard enough between the lines you may stumble upon the softest yet loudest, the most hidden yet clearest, voice of the author.
