I learned to read and write when I was four years old. Ever since I learned to enjoy the pleasure of reading, I have immersed myself in books. I am the kind of reader that when I start reading, I lose myself in the book completely. There is an experience of magical transportation to different places and friendships with wonderful people.
When I have to stop reading, it takes me a while to remember where I am. Or who I am. If there is one thing that defines me, it’s my ability to get lost, to lose touch with my surroundings, as I enter into the world of the book.
This ability is not special. I believe everyone can lose themselves in this way. We can all get lost…IN A BOOK TONIGHT.
