Reading is an important part of my life. It always has been. I found myself daydreaming a lot in my classes. I made stories in my head that involved love, mystery, and fantasy. Then, when I found books, whatever was constantly in my head went onto pages. It was like magic. My mom owned a physical library card when I was younger (I know, ancient). So, I got to sit in the children’s section for hours reading Junie B. Jones, Judy Moody, and the Half Upon a Time series. That world in my head never went away as I grew up. It used to be a place to escape, and now it is a place to live. From gasping to crying to laughing, books have so much power.
