I’m going to tell you about my love for reading. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always been more of the introverted type and have loved to have my face buried in a book. Since my parents often fought when I was a child, I felt that it was an escape from reality. Moreover, I am also really into writing and I think it’s impossible to be a great writer without reading. Through reading books, I can bask in the literary geniuses of the book and find inspiration for my own books in the future. I read every single day. Actually, I can’t recall a single day in my life that I didn't read. Sometimes I feel as if books are my entire life. Whether the book is my taste or not, the suspense always kills me and I cannot stop flipping the pages to find out what happens next. However, duty calls and I must go to work at the boutique from 10-6 Monday-Friday, so I have to pull myself away from my books during that time. I usually get up around 7am and read a bit before work then come home, have dinner, and get lost in a book for the rest of the evening.
As I mentioned, books are a great escape for me as I feel my life is quite mundane Moreover, I really find deep joy in analyzing the literature, such as the character development, plot, archetypes, etc. I feel like my best self when I read; I feel I stretch my mind to new dimensions. Furthermore, reading sends me into a tranquil state. After a busy day at work, opening a book is the best way to unwind . On another note, I feel quite exhausted conversing with others all day at work so I feel quite rejuvenated when I’m finally at home in my den in my happy place. Moreover, I feel that people who read have more interesting things to talk about so I often find myself in engaging conversations with co-workers and customers at the boutique throughout the day. All in all, reading is everything to me.
