What is it about books?

What is it about books?  All my life, I have felt drawn to them.  When I walk into a library or a bookstore, I stare with wide eyed amazement.  It makes my soul happy to see all those books.

I enjoy reading fiction.  There are so many stories waiting to be read.  Books are full of adventure, mystery, joy, and even sadness.  The characters become my friends.  It’s as if they are sitting right in front of me and telling me their stories.

I also enjoy reading non-fiction.  Books are full of wisdom and knowledge.  They are waiting to impart that wisdom and knowledge to me.

There are so many wonderful books.  I want to read them all.  What’s a bibliophile to do?
