I READ: becuase one life is not enough, and in the pages of a book a can be anybody.

I READ: because the words that build the story become mine, to build my life.

I READ: not for happy endings but for new beginnings; I’m just beginning myself and I wouldn’t mide a map.

I READ: because I have friends who don’t and young though they are, there are beginning to run out of materials.

I READ: because every journey starts at the library and it’s time for me to start packing.

I READ: because one if these days I’m going to get out of this town and I’m going to go everywhere and meet everyone, and I want to be ready.
