books by eudora welty

Reading is the one journey where you take one step and travel lifetimes. You can discover the world from the center of your bed and have all of the attention of characters focused solely on you.

It relaxes, it coaxes, it soothes, and it strengthens. Fear and doubt can be washed away in a few pages. Close the book, and you can feel your soul expand and your chest rise with an enlarged beating heart. There are so many books and authors, yet, reading is the one obsession that we do not tire of. Rather, it grows with our indulgences and seeks out even more.

An appreciation for reading and writing is what propels us to begin sharing our stories. The scope and reach is so large that even when our own world becomes too small, the universe awaits us, embraces us, and shelters us in the cocoon of words once more.

  1. Getting “lost” in a book is a wonderful thing. An escape from reality, it expands our minds, our vocabulary and our world!

    • Amen!! Well Said!

  2. My love of reading began way back in my secondary girls school.. I was always a bit of a loner, shy, and got picked upon by my class mates because I came from a poorer background than many attending the school.. So I would delve into books and get lost in break and lunch times.. I was transported into another realm of existence.. I had a wonderful English teacher who saw this, and she introduced me to books in her own personal library of novels. for more older students… I was then hooked, into a world of drama, romance, danger and adventure.. 🙂

    I could not imagine a world without Books or the written word which transports us in an instant into another world of our Imagination..

    Thank you for sharing.. and sending a hug your way also..

    Blessings Sue
