So I was a bit too tired to manage my blog last night which was a bit sad since it was the first Theme Tuesday, an event put together by Boktimmen-Fia. We all who wanted to join sent in one or several themes and then she pulled one from a jar. This first week the theme is “Why is it important to be a reader?”
I am having problems answering this actually because I can’t image not being a reader. Books have been a constant companion in my life for as long as I can remember, when I couldn’t read myself I was read to and when I started to learn I read everything, even the signs passing by as we went somewhere in the car.
If I wasn’t a reader I wouldn’t be be and that’s why I think being a reader is important, because it gives you a chance to find out who you are by being other people for a little while, by getting to know people who are long dead or made up, by loving people not even from this world.
And it doesn’t matter what you read. Sure, I might raise an eyebrow now and then at peoples choices but really, “50 shades…” or War and Peace don’t matter none. Just as long and words are read and stories told.
