Readers and books…Life

Books, Door, Entrance, Culture, Library

It’s true when they say that every person who reads the same book, reads a different one.  Like everything else in life, we read what we are.  We interpret the words by running them through our personal filters, our personal experience and our one-of-a-kind world view.   Books fill a need, a desire, a longing, and each of those things are unique to the reader.

Small children have favorite books.  Books that speak to them personally.  We’re born knowing what we like and what’s meaningful to us.  Those things are built into our core personalities, they are innate.

For those of us who love books, life is one page after another, until we get get to the final chapter and find out if there’s a sequel.
