I hate it when people give up on books because they are different or strange. If you don’t understand a book, have the person you love read it aloud to you before you go to sleep. Sit in a bookstore and get lost with that person or with your best friend or even just with a cup of coffee. Don’t let the world distract you from what could be the most amazing experience of your life. Read and love. To have a full life, that’s all that’s required. “To read, even in the half-dark, is also to call the lost forward.” You always find something of yourself, something you thought you lost, if you truly learn to lose yourself in the pages of a book.
