Close your eyes, and imagine yourself holding a book. With both hands, all your energy is focussed on this book in your hands. You now have the ability to understand the author of this book more than any of their closest friends. Their thoughts, and their feelings, and their body is translated into words that fill an object as simple as this book in your hands. You have the capability to unzip the writer's heart and peer from wall to wall. You get to understand their appreciation for small things like true love, warm hugs, cobwebbed attics, dusted trinkets, and antique rocking chairs. Books are the one thing that make you feel close to a person more than any conversation or phone call. Books are amazing.
