Book it!

I wish we had Book it!  for adults — or, I don’t even know if it is still around , but if it were I would be racking up on Pizza Hut pizzas.

I just love reading. It’s so much better than a T.V. episode or a movie in forms of entertainment. It captures my attention longer because it usually takes me way more than 30mins to 2 hours to read a book. Plus, a book allows me to make up a unique story in my mind with the unwritten characteristics for the characters and settings.

When I was reading Harry Potter, I envisioned the characters slightly different than the ones they picked for the movie. I even pronounced Hermonie differently. I was able to take the story and make it my own and have an emotional connection to the book that no one else had. Sure, there were shared experiences from things explicitly stated in the book, but for the things not completely described, my imagination could run wild and create a more enriching story.

I love the way books engulf, the way they transport us from our surroundings when it’s a rainy day or a bright sunny summer afternoon.

I wish I could be engulfed while munching on some hot Pizza Hut pizza too.
