The world belongs to those who read. - Rick Holland
This world, all worlds, the reader's world. Whether real or imagined, the world is yours in so many ways when you immerse yourself in reading.
Books open many doors and spread new horizons before your mind's eye. They help you grow, they teach you, they show you how to think.
For better, or for worse, a book can change your life completely. But even if a book does not impact you so dramatically, it changes you because after reading a book, any book, you will never be the same. The inner talk, the questions, the doubts, the answers, they all add to your experience, even if it is only an imagined one.
