Even when I was younger, I loved reading. My mom and dad would read to me before bed and even before I was able to read on my own I would memorize the pages and call them out if they tried to skip parts to rush along my bedtime! Once I was in elementary school, some of my favorite books were in series- Little House on the Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, Boxcar Children, Nancy Drew, and so many more. I have always grown up with a love of reading.
I would much rather lose myself in a book before plopping in front of the television to watch a show or movie. There's just something about immersing yourself in a storyline, empathizing with characters and feeling the tension of conflict, the sadness of tragedy or the awkwardness of a silly encounter in a chick lit book. I just love borrowing a book from a friend or downloading a new title recommended to me for my Kindle and sitting down with a cup of coffee. Little things like that bring me so much joy, so today I am thankful for peaceful moments getting lost in the words of a book.
