    I love these quotes. They are so true. Books are like doors that lead to other worlds. All we have to do is open one. These quotes fit me perfectly.

    I love quotes like these. I spend a lot of my time reading books and I feel I spend more time with characters from books than with real people because books don’t judge you.

    I have no idea where or from whom it originated, but I absolutely love the quote, “Lose yourself in the words.” Obviously that quote could be seen in a different context (music, writing, movies) but for me it reminds me about the way I lose myself in a book. I write that quote everywhere, not just because its my favorite, but for when I’m sad so that I can remember what to do to make the sadness go away.
