Book Therapy

Do you ever feel like you need a break from the world- a break from reality?

Today I found relief in the comfort of a book. I sat on the couch, sipping my coffee, slowly detaching myself from reality and stepping into the story.

I realize this is a luxury, and it was exactly what I needed today. It is not often I can sit for hours and read. Most days I feel fortunate to read a few pages before bed…but this morning, I sat. I turned the pages of a real book with real pages.

The sun shone outside, and I stayed inside and read more. Breakfast and lunch time passed by, and I was only hungry to understand what would happen next.

I continued to read. I read until the story was so real that I cried for the characters’ struggles. I read until I reached the end.

I exhaled, grateful for the incredible gift of a good book…and a new perspective.
