on reading - tahereh mafi

I spent my life folded between the pages of books.  In the absence of human
relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through
stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world
is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts
and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by
sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.
