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.
Readings been one of the only constants in my life. It’s the one thing that I can turn to when I’m overwhelmed, sad, scared, angry or any number of emotions. It’s an escape from the real world and who doesn’t need that sometimes? With so many changes in my life, books have been the rock. My grandmother instilled in me the love of reading at a very young age and I’ve been a bookworm ever since – it’s a way to connect with her, when I can’t in real life anymore.
