Wonderful Words: On Reading

We read stories to make sense of our lives, to be entertained, and to feel something…to be transported to another more lucid and compelling world, to learn about ourselves, what it’s like to be human, and to “meet” someone we can care about. We read stories in order to imagine and to create, and so we ask the writer to tell us a story.
