Books Take Me Away!

One of My Favorite Books

When I was very young I realized that books were the magic carpet to take me to places that I couldn't go in reality.

I remember reading "Anne of Green Gables", Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I was always the heroine/hero in each of these books. It was awesome to be able to bring joy to a community of people in "Anne of Green Gables" and to be able to solve the crime in the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries.

Books took me in my mind and swept me into a time and place that was exciting and fun! I could see the story in my mind and could see all the places as if I was there in person.

My household was in turmoil at that time and the books were a way of escaping all the tension and fear.

Books will always be a love of mine. They took me to such places that I would never have the opportunity to visit. They were and still are my best friend and my most loyal companion that was always there for me.
