For my last post of the semester (except for my final thoughts on the internship), I would like to leave you with one quote from Richard Peck, whom I think is a wonderful author. This is from his autobiography, Anonymously Yours.
“I read because one life isn’t enough, and in the page of a book I can be anybody; I read because the words that build the story become mine, to build my life;
I read not for happy endings but new beginnings; I’m just beginning myself, and I wouldn’t mind a map;
I read because I have friends who don’t, and young though they are, they’re beginning to run out of material;
I read because every journey begins at the library, and it’s time for me to start packing;
I read because one of these days I’m going to get out of this town, and I’m going to go everywhere and meet everybody, and I want to be ready.”
