I read because I enjoy stories,
I read because I like travelling to other worlds,
I read because I like meeting new people and creating friendships with extraordinary people. I read to escape,
I read because it’s the one thing that breaks the chains that keep me locked to our corrupt world,
I read because the worlds I find within books, are the closest thing I’ll ever come to salvation.
