I have always been the biggest book worm. I used to be known in the library. I would power through those reading lists. I've always loved the smell of a new book. You know? When you first open it. I can't describe it. If it was a candle, I would definitely buy that. You hear me Yankee Candle? Anyways. 

I remember the first chapter of the first Harry Potter book. I remember the first time I was ever introduced to The Boy Who Lived like it was yesterday. Obviously, it wasn't. It was when I was in about the second grade. I've always been the same age as Harry, Ron, + Hermoine. I think that's why I love them so much. Like they're my friends. (hey Kasey, you sound a little like the kid who doesn't have any friends + just has imaginary ones.

I love the way that a well written story can transport you into a whole new world. (I can show you the world, shining, shimmering, splendid) What's even more incredible to me, is that whole world came from someone's imagination. Do you remember when you were a kid? Playing outside for hours and hours with probably nothing but you, nature, and your imagination? (was that just me? or?

How fantastic is that? I am so impressed by people who can make a living off of their imagination. It's like they never hit that point where they had to stifle it to be a member of the work force. They found a way to take that creativity and share it with the world. I think it's an incredibly brave thing to do. Especially with how mean book critics can be. 

I love books more than just about anything I can come up with. I love the summer because it's so lovely outside and so acceptable to lay around in the sunshine drinking margaritas and tearing through books. Or a rainy snow day where you can sit in the bed + read an entire book in one sitting. How do you feel about books? Do you think I'm crazy for loving them so? Are you friends with Hermoine, Ron, and Harry? Are you linking up yet? Am I asking too many questions?
