Irrevocably a reader
“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.”
— Alberto Manguel
It’s never to late to have this magical instant happen in your life. It doesn’t matter if you were a poor reader in school. It doesn’t matter if you weren’t the academic star. It doesn’t matter if your present circumstances are limited. Reading can soothe or stimulate your mind, feed your imagination and set you free from isolation, boredom and despair. If you can read these words, you can open the door to visit new universes. What a magnificent gift; an unparalleled opportunity to grow. Go for it!
