Reading

February 5, 2010

The journaling reads:
Of all the things that are good for my soul, books come first. (Okay, the people come first, but we’re talking about “things” not people.) There’s nothing like reading to calm my soul, to help me escape my world and plunge into someone else’s and to forget about any stress I might be carrying.

I have always been an avid reader. When I was little, books were my escape and now that I’m all grown up, books are still my escape. I love a great fiction book with good characters and their ordinary lives. I don’t need constructed world or some mysterious plot, I just like the everyday stuff.

The thing about books is that they don’t ask for anything from me. They don’t tap into my creative or emotional energy. They don’t require me to think and use my brain as much as my work does. No computer skills required. Just a comfy chair, a warm drink, and this week’s novel. And I am in heaven.

This is one of the reasons I make the effort to read a book a week. I’ve learned that it’s good for my soul.
