What would it mean to you to live in a world without books?

A world without reading would be like trying to survive in a world without oxygen. Books and reading are pivotal for people to learn and to have an imagination. Books help to empower our imagination and are powerful to keep our brains active and always learning something new.
Reading is such a huge part of my life and I could never image a life without it. Reading relieves stress, improves your mental health, and can bring hours and hours of entertainment. Reading can take you out of your stress filled life and take you to unimaginable places full of fantasy, romance and amazing worlds!
Meet, The Reader!!
Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin’s been taken, or if she’s even alive. The only clue to both her aunt’s disappearance and her father’s murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book—a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and find out what really happened the day her father was killed—and punish the people responsible.

I love reading because I love learning about new people, cultures, languages, worlds, etc. Whether history, fiction, young adult, etc. you can learn a lot by reading.
Reading is like traveling to me. It transports me to different worlds and introduces me to interesting people. I love reading!
I didn't read until I was 7, remember having to repeat Kindergarten for not knowing how. Once I could though, that was it. In first grade I was getting in trouble for reading in the back by the bookshelves instead of sitting in my desk to do work. I stayed up into the wee hours reading under my covers with my little book light. I can't go a day without reading. It is my vice, keeps me going.
Reading takes me away from my life and lets me travl the world and experiemce things I never will in my own life.
I love to read because I get to have so many experiences and live so many different lives through other people's imaginations!
