  1. Lovely thought and worthy passions expressed here, Dear. You communicated exactly how you felt about books and reading, which I identified with. I think as a child I read to escape. Now, as an old lady, I read to learn to experience all I haven’t and probably won’t in my lifetime. Because I want MORE, I turn to books and find in them the solutions to my limited time left, greedily gobbling up authors’ opinions and experiences I have not tasted myself. Reading is a way to do this.
