They are better than life.

"So I kept reading, just to stay alive. In fact, I'd read two or three books at the same time, so I wouldn't finish one without being in the middle of another -- anything to stop me from falling into the big, gaping void. You see, books fill the empty spaces. If I'm waiting for a bus, or am eating alone, I can always rely on a book to keep me company. Sometimes I think I like them even more than people. People will let you down in life. They'll disappoint you and hurt you and betray you. But not books. They're better than life."

Hi Craig! :))


I'm reading Beloved by Toni Morrison :)

February 14, 2013

I love my books too :)

I don't mind being alone, in fact mostly I prefer it, but reading is pleasurable in many ways, at different times.


For a person, whose brain never stops thinking, reading is the equivolent of a quiet day for someone else.

When I read, I don't often think anything else, which is the closest to relaxing that I get (without Mitten, who gives the nicest cuddles ever).


What are you reading at the moment, Diamond?
