“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”
This is why a book will always be a best friend for me. It will always feel as if I’ve escaped the world for even just a moment. It will always be there for me, to comfort, to give advice, to guide me.
