“To me, reading means bonding. Bonding with the characters, with people around me, and even bonding with myself"
“As long as I can remember, I’ve carried a book with me wherever I go”
“When life gets stressful or overwhelming I’ve always had books to turn to.”
“ Each night after the baby was in bed, it was my time to curl up with a book. ”
