“She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live” – Annie Dillard
If that quote resonates with you then you are my people! Reading has always been so much more to me than a hobby. It is a part of me and without books I would not be complete. Reading feeds my imagination and is the best form of escapism. As soon as I could read the library became one of my favourite places to visit, it still is. The endless possibility hiding behind those colourful spines would taunt me and choosing 6-8 books was always a pleasurable torture.
Once my girls arrived it became much more difficult to stay up until the early hours of the morning with a good book. It is only now that they are a bit older and going to bed at a decent hour that I am finding my joy again. My husband gifted me with a Kindle for Christmas and it is possibly the best resent I have ever received. I can read in the dark if I’m stuck under a child or even in the car while waiting for after school pick up.
