This is beautiful. Books are the best! <--- But still, I used to actually cry when I was younger because I was never going to get to do anything as cool as all those characters. << but that's why we read, right?
I read to escape the mental torment of feeling insignificant and thoughts of death. I've read so many fanfictions about one character I Mau as well be that person I know them so well. I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't read.
