“When life gets stressful or overwhelming I’ve always had books to turn to.”
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.
I read, not only because I love stories, but because it’s an escape. There is nothing better than getting a good book in your hands and getting lost for an hour (or three!) in someone else’s world. When life gets stressful or overwhelming I’ve always had books to turn to. They are my therapy!
