I have an obsession with books. There. I said it. Whether I’m reading a book or writing one, I find a certain sense of peace and comfort I can never find elsewhere.

When I’m reading, I can shut out the world and immerse myself in a world where everything will be okay in the end. I can do the things I’ve only ever dreamed of doing without fear of judgement. I can new love through the eyes of a character or go on a thrilling chase.

It’s a way of escape for me. A paradise.

I’m not sure if you completely understand where I’m coming from, considering not many people nowadays enjoy books very much anymore but if you have the time, pick up a book from your local library or nearest bookstore and just immerse yourself completely in the story. It’s worth it. Trust me.

Or, if you don’t want to read a physical book, you could always get an ebook or even go on Wattpad and read some great stories written by people like you and me. It’s also a great platform to meet new people and maybe, you’ll even write your own story there one day (*cough* promo *cough*)
