Books have a way of making you homesick for a place you have never been.
Give me untidy stacks of books, shelves filled to the brim with all my thoughts committed to ink and paper before I even knew I had them. Give me the wide sweep of imagination that can bring me back to life right after deadening my heart. Give me made up words, iambic pentameter, and dangling participles wedged between quotation marks. Give me words, and if you can’t, give me the promise of them.

IF YOU SAY YOU LIKE READING BUT YOU CHOOSE TO BUY A KINDLE OVER AN ACTUAL PHYSICAL BOOK THEN I SWEAR TO GOD I AM GOING TO COME INTO YOUR HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND WAKE YOU UP AND HUG YOU SO HARD AND MAYBE WE CAN PAINT OUR NAILS TOGETHER AND TALK ABOUT OUR FAVOURITE BOOKS BECAUSE READING IS A WONDERFUL THING AND THE MAGIC IS IN THE WORDS SO WE SHOULD NEVER LIMIT OURSELVES BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE THINK THEY’RE BETTER THAN YOU FOR THE WAY THEY CHOOSE TO READ
