I’m generally a serious girl with very silly habits. I like to think of myself as open-minded, but I admit I’m conventional in some ways. For one, my favorite type of cookie is chocolate chip. I love them almost as I much as I love books. However, I will accept chocolate chip cookies in lieu of books. Both would be preferable.
For me, books provide a simple way to defy laws of nature. I can travel through time. I can encounter people long dead. I can be someone else, or even something else. I can live in this world, or in one that doesn’t exist. Some people argue that books isolate and prevent us from living in the real world, but I disagree. I think that books help us better understand our world because, through reading, we learn we are never really alone.
