When I Read A Book

While reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith, I came across this sentence and I loved it, so I wanted to share it here:

When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it — or rather, it is like living it. 

I love this idea that reading is just as active as writing.  As living.

  1. That's ME! I've always felt I lived at book rather than just reading it! That quote's going in my journal.

    P.S. Thanks for your kind words on my blog today. It was a vulnerable post for me and your words sank into my heart. *hugs*
