I believe reading does force us to be quiet. It is hard to find that kind of quiet anymore.
Don't you find many magical things and places when you are reading? I know I can be transported to those places when I lose myself in a good book. I feel like I am getting a peak into other places, other lives, things I wouldn't otherwise get to experience.
And thank goodness my reading takes me to places I otherwise wouldn't get to go. I don't have to pack. I don't have to fly. I don't have to drive. I just sit down in my recliner, or lie in my bed, and visit places all over the world.
I almost exclusively read on my Nook now. But I still love the smell of books. I still love to pick up a heavy book and contemplate reading it. I like to flip through the pages. I'll keep feeding my addiction. What about you? How do you feel about reading?? Have a Happy National Book Lover's Day!!
I colored this for my planner!
