The written word has so much to offer that it’s almost scary what it can do to your imagination. A book is a journey, an experience. You hear the roaring thunder threatening to overturn your boat, you feel the ecstasy of having climbed Mt. Everest, you smell the wet soil of a rainforest, you crouch behind cars with detectives, you conjure up images of galloping girraffes and grotesque gargoyles, you play a sport using broomsticks, you walk through mirrors, you travel to worlds real, unreal and surreal.
You can go anywhere you want.
