Me! Me, I do!!
I love the worlds I've explored in books. I love to read about people whose lives are totally different than mine. I love to read about people with issues and ideas different than mine.
I love to read historical fiction and travel through time to experience events I've learned about in history class. I love to read books that deal with day-to-day life at a time before electricity was invented and a time before the Revolutionary War and a time before Columbus sailed the ocean blue and a time when Bible characters walked the earth.
I love to read books that let me sample different careers like fashion, banking, being an astronaut, working in a funeral parlor, being a teacher, running a bait shop, being a maid, and owning a publishing empire.
And because of my love of books, I love to write books. I dream of readers joining me on a journey with my characters and learning about the character -- and perhaps learning something about themselves.
What about you? What do you love about books?
