While browsing in the public library the other day I came upon a book I had been seeking for nearly a year.
Overjoyed I raced home, made some tea, curled up in the sun and left the world for a few hours.
There is something absolutely magical about getting lost in a book. My personal reading tastes are eclectic and it is not unusual to have multiple books on the go at once. But this time, I devoured the book in a sitting. When finished, I reluctantly dragged myself back into the world. However, just like traveling, I came back with new perspective. Little issues which had blown out of proportion seemed once again little and easily surmountable.
Such a simple pleasure. And if you use the library – free.
