What’s your most favourite place in the world?
To meet strange new creatures. Make friends, or enemies, with the characters. To laugh, cry, hate and love is all blended into a heady mix, which makes me feel alive.
Why alive? Because everyday life, for me, is so dull and reading and writing are my only escapes from the hum drum. Our existence, so it seems to me, is one huge waiting game. Waiting to see if things will get better, or waiting for our big break. Waiting to see if that job will come our way. Waiting for pay day and so on and so on.
A book can take you out of the waiting room that is life. For those of us who love to read, it rarely fails. Perhaps it’s a form of living other people’s lives, albeit fictional people, by proxy. But if you read the right kind of thing, it can inspire, lift spirits and perhaps spur us onto greater things.
