Love of Books

Here is a neat article, “What I Love About Books,” posted by Barbara Vey on the Publishers Weekly blog. She lists ten reasons why she loves books. So I started my own list about why I love books too:

  1. I love to read for inspiration.
  2. I love to immerse myself in another time and place, especially with historical fiction novels.
  3. I love to learn new things that I didn’t know before.
  4. I love my imagination to soar with some books.
  5. I love to sometimes chuckle, sometimes cry, with certain books.
What about you? What do you love about books?

"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him." -- Maya Angelou
