Books are a place to escape, a place to transform into someone or something else. You go into a book to: escape, indulge, marvel, solve, and love.
My image of a book portrays it as a safe place that is determined by the person who needs that haven, for each person it is different. While writing about books, a quote continued to pop in my head, “books are a uniquely portable magic.” This was how I visualized books, but for so many people books are portrayed as boring or too educational and people choose not to explore them. Books can and are used for development and success but they are also associated with relaxation and filled with a potential that far exceeds people’s usual imagination.
