I love to read. Reading transports me to the realms of make-believe or not. Reading de-stresses me. The most simple pleasure in life can be just to curl up with a good book, a cup of coffee beside one and a muffin to eat. I dream of having my own library complete with walnut walls and big, comfy chairs to lounge in. A roaring fire would go down nicely but I don't need to read books to dream that one. I can't imagine not being able to read and I thank my lucky stars I was born in an age when schooling was a priority and learning to read was number one. I love the smell of libraries and books. It's up there with the aroma of fresh coffee beans.
Vive le reading!
