“When you think about what reading is and how it works, it honestly seems like magic. We look at some black ink on a white page, and from there, we can travel through other worlds, other universes, meet other people, feel real feelings.
Reading harnesses the power of the human brain in a way that is really quite extraordinary. It demonstrates how powerful our minds are. Reading is an everyday magic, and I am grateful every day that I grew up in a time of mass literacy, because my life would be markedly worse without reading in it.”
