My Secret Love Affair .... with books

You don’t get many options in life, but with books, the options are nearly endless and the pleasures never get old.

No matter what demons or challenges I’m facing in my own life I can choose out of millions of characters with whom I want to share my cares and woes. And to celebrate with! Even when I’m at my lowest of lows, I can share in the victories of my fictitious or historical friends.

Because most days, their victories are my highlights.

Even if I’m reading about a character undergoing tremendous suffering, I are reminded that I am not alone.

From a beautiful article, “My Secret Love Affair,” by Andrew Toy.
