I have always had a great love for reading, but it’s about more than just books. Reading is an escape. It is a chance to enter another world and to let your mind be free for a while. The land of books is a place where you can be anything, you can dream anything, and you can feel however you like. Books will be here for you whenever you need them, they are inspiring, they are heartbreaking. Reading has gotten me through many hard times, and even kept me grounded during great times.
If I were to win the lottery, the first place I would visit would be a bookstore (and then a clothing store…). The first things I would buy?

Yes it is a random mix, and it’s probably not what everyone would pick, but I just love books. Reading makes me so happy, that I make sure to do it as often as possible (I also do this with eating Doritos). Always do what makes you happy as often as you can, you deserve it.
