THE JOY OF READING

I found these words in the book I started reading last night.

Joy of reading

This is why I read. To open my imagination, thus meeting new people and places, and experiencing new things.

After my disappointment with The Fault in Our Stars, I was overjoyed to dive into a new book and immediately meet characters I wanted to get to know.

I only managed 50 pages last night but I can see that Jennifer Donnelly’s A Gathering Light is going to sit well with me. The protagonist, Mattie, has an intense love of words which is quite enough in itself to help me relate, let along her conflict between desire for education and family.

The quote above is  Mattie’s words – you can see why I love her already!
