I love to read fiction books, it takes me away to another place and another time, a way for me to escape the doldrums of everyday life. I get to meet so many people- some good, some bad, and some commonplace. I especially like it if I come across someone who makes me think and makes me question things. Some become life long friends I like to read about over and over again. I get so much pleasure from reading!
