This week has been tough all around. I watched the prayer service for the attack on Boston and the news anchor asked how we go back to living our lives.Good question. As I write this post I’m watching the news on the blast in Waco.
Of course we need to face life and deal with issues, but there’s a time and season for everything. Real life is one reason I enjoy reading books that take me away, stories that give me an escape. I don’t want to read a heart-wrenching novel consumed with tragedy.
Recently one of my readers shared that when she gets down she picks up one of my books and it just takes her away to good places. That warmed my heart to know that I had helped her in this way.
We all read for different reasons. Is reading to escape one of yours?
