“There's something magical about holding a book and knowing you have a whole world in your hands."
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 because I like to escape into the world of the book. There’s something magical about holding a book and knowing you have a whole world in your hands. Reading opens my mind to so many new ideas and perspectives that I wouldn’t have thought of. I love to read from character’s perspectives that are different than my own. By reading a book, I can travel wherever I want without having to leave my home. Books open new worlds to us.
