While you read my essay it may be obvious that I love to read. It is obvious because it is true. Reading may seem as simple as reading words on a simple sheet of paper, but you need to try to look past all of that and realize that it is more than that. What I discovered was a place to escape to that made me happy. So I can always rely on my books to help me and be there for me and that is why I chose to write about reading.
