I’ve found books to be a very important part of my life. They continually influence me and indeed feel like a companion.
Robertson Davies says “the book will find you” – i.e., the book you’re “meant” to read will somehow find its’ way into your hands. I agree. I mean, it may not be true every waking moment but there have been significant times in which I’ve found this to be true.
When I read Robertson Davies’ books many years ago I was struck by how full of life his stories were. I just felt so engrossed and alive when reading them.
Fiction and non-fiction alike I’ve found books are always taking me somewhere. The book journey is a real and significant part of my life.
And you? What’s your book journey?
