My favourite mode of transport has to be a book. Just take a moment to think about it...
Your favourite classic novel takes you back to a time previously you had merely read about from dull history textbooks.
The hand-me-down annuals hark back to a simpler time.
The fast paced fantasy novels stacked on your night table take you in the future,
The elegant historical fiction books that line your shelves take you to the past,
And the memoirs take you to a world you can't quite believe in, but is just so real.
Books are amazing. The rustle as you turn breathlessly through the pages, hungry for more words, for more story. Lines of poetry that make you pause and think before you re-read the stanza that conjures up an amazing image in your head.
One book I am currently reading.
Two books I am going to read.
Three books out the library.
Six books... I am sure I will be back at the library after school on Tuesday or Thursday. That's how voracious a reader I am.
