Words have power. Books have power. Words start wars. Words end wars. Words have freed slaves, created new countries, and built confederacies. Words have power. Books are composed of words. When organized in a certain way, books can inspire people to do great things, or ignite a terrible plan. Even the simplest non-fiction books have influenced one person in a unique and amazing way. Books have power.
Books are just movies before the actors. You get to watch the whole thing play out in your head. The best part is, YOU are the producer. YOU choose the cast. YOU make the props. YOU make the movie happen, and it is unique to each and every person. Books allow you to put some words on paper to life inside your head. Unique to your understanding.
One of the best parts of reading is being transported into a different place. When an author writes with so much detail that you can feel what it is like to be there, you are reading a good book. I don't know why we can't actually be transported there. But it is almost just as good to feel the emotions in the book. One of the best things in life is reading a book that has done such a good job at creating a new world that you can almost go there. Get trapped in a book and never return. You won't regret it.
In the end, reading a book is a way of escaping to a fictional/non-fictional reality that allows your imagination to run wild. Books are powerful.
