“Books are like a hand reaching out—they can help you feel less alone. I swear they could be called life jackets sometimes. Sometimes we can feel really odd and quite broken and then these beautiful imaginary creatures walk into our lives and say, “Hey, I’m here. I’ll sit with you for a while (or maybe for the rest of your life)”. And that is a beautiful kind of magic—to receive love and care like that from the pages of a book. So books are a kindness, an act of empathy, and reading them can save our lives.”
