Books are the passageway into historical times, revealing ancient discoveries, feats and accomplishments. Without books there would be no music, songs and stories to read. Gone would be the buildings we admire, canvasses that grace the walls, our heroes and their gallants feats. Books are the means of immortalization and the roadways to the future.
A reader lives thousands of lives before he dies.
The person who never reads lives only once.

I OPENED A BOOK
I opened a book and in I strode.
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.
I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.
I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.
I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.”
― Julia Donaldson
