Why is reading important to you?

I’ll never be without the feeling of excitement running through the library stacks hunting for the next book in a series or being hooked by the first line of a book whose cover or title drew me in.

As language books are expressions but they are also moments. When we read time can stand still as new ideas and feelings are born and learn.

Reading and writing help make us who we are and who we want to be.

Ideas live in books and in libraries, in the excitement that comes from encountering a new story or discussing an old favourite.

Reading is part of me and it is part of you and we wouldn’t be the same without it.
