A long, long time ago in a land far, far away four children climbed into a wardrobe to hide from a mean governess and fell into a new world.
I was HOOKED.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was the first book I read from cover to cover without being told to do it by either parent or teacher. Something clicked during this journey through Narnia. I finished the book and thought, ‘So this is why people read.’ It was an important AHA moment in my life.
I think many people miss or by pass this moment, which is sad. I know more people who don’t read than do.
For me, reading is a chance of adventure. To be someone else. When I read my focus narrows and all around me tends to fade. It drives my husband crazy when I sit in my chair and laugh or cry at what I’m reading.
Why do you read?
