Lose ourselves

There are all kinds of books in my library. Books I lose myself in and books in which I have found myself. One never knows which kind of book one is going to be when you take it down off the shelf.

As a writer, it’s much the same, at least for me. Some books take me away and I never want to come back. Others answer questions I wasn’t aware I needed to ask. I have a special fondness for books which teach me something unexpectedly.
