    Reading is a huge escape

    for me from my depression and anxiety. I've been really stressed lately and therefore have read several books in short periods of time. Last night I started and finished a 400 page book. Reading is my sanity.

    I just finished a book I was reading,

    "Bless Me, Ultima". It was honestly just amazing. I didn't expect that I would cry at the ending, but I did. Which I think is a good thing. To the young & older people here, please, never stop reading books; Never loose that love. And if you already have, it's never too late to...

    I prefer physical books,

    so I can feel the paper in my hand and hear that flick when I turn the page. Besides, reading digital books strains my eyes.

    There's over 10 at the moment

    that I'm going through, hardly ever finish them but oh well, I don't ever want them to end, it's a little sad when they end, but then what one can tell oneself is no, they just are beginning then.

    I hate it when I finish reading a book in class.

    I'll look around the room and notice that kids are going on with their day, texting and talking and what not, as if I didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback.

    I see reading as an escape route; a small

    distraction from reality. I can go beyond the four walls of my room, without having to move.
