“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.”

                                                                          Joyce Carol Oates

“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.”

                                                                          Carl Sagan

  1. Bradbury’s quote for me spoke at the forefront of what should be important in today’s society. I loved Joyce Carol’s words because reading is like that for me.

    For me, books were an escape from the confines of my real world. In my imagination, books were the gateway to far away places and destinations I never thought possible.
