An Escape

I know this is a common sentiment shared by lovers of books all over but I must say it - I read to escape. I read to escape the mundane matters of ordinary life. I read to escape into the lives of rich and vibrant characters, people that I want to be but can never be in real life. I read to escape into worlds rife with pathos and chaos, where I, along with the book's heros and heroines, can help battle and eventually conquer evil. That is why I like to read.

I just wish I had more time... I have to wait until I'm in bed and then I'll either read way too long and hurt the next day, or I fall asleep after one paragraph!

I could not have put it any better myself :)
