Thanks for all the books: escape

One of the best things about being a reader for me is that 8 hours at work is a small price to pay for knowing that I can come home and get comfy on the couch with whatever book I’m reading and not have to think about the day I’ve just had. It doesn’t matter how shitty, boring, frustrating, depressing, [insert as many negative adjectives here as you like] the day was – there is solace waiting for me when I get home.

“Mother used to say escape is never further than the nearest book.” (David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas)

And now that I’m getting heavily into audiobooks, I don’t even have to wait until I get home to escape; I can escape the drudgery as I’m walking out the door.

What’s making you grateful for books this week?
