“Everything else fades away and all that's left is me and this book.”


Welcome to our series “The Readers’ Diary”, we’re asking readers why they read and what does reading mean to them.

As readers increasingly share what they’re currently reading and plan to read on social media, we wanted to share more about the people behind each post.

Reading for me is an escape from the real world. No matter what’s going on in my life, I know I can open a book and get lost in the pages. Everything else fades away and all that’s left is me and this book. If I didn’t have reading as a way to get away from it all, I would be a complete mess right now.
