Books are my security blankets in the constantly thundering rain clouds of life; they are my cup of tea after an exhausting day; they are my stars in a dark, mysterious night sky; they are my doors to ethereal worlds when this one just won’t do— books are… books.
This is absolutely beautiful and describes how I feel about books perfectly.
Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
I really love this piece~
And she is the reader
who browses the shelf
and looks for new worlds
but finds herself.
This movie! Love it! <3
Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell
Lots and lots of books.
It genuinely baffles me when people ask, ‘how do you have time to read?’ because let me put it this way; how do you have time to hang out with friends, watch tv, go to parties, study until the break of dawn and then spend time with the family?
The answer’s pretty obvious. You make time.
Because if it’s something you enjoy doing or something you have to do, you’ll find a way to get around that there’s only 24-hours-in-a-day-thing.
There are people who think that things that happen in fiction do not really happen. These people are wrong.
