"Books provide solace during hard times, pleasure during good times; they can inspire you...and comfort you, and educate you, and infuriate you." ~ Anne Stuart
I love the above quote. Maybe I like it so much because it describes how I feel about reading and books. I've learned so much from books. I've reached for a favorite novel to read again and again when things aren't going well. Doing so not only provides solace, but comfort, allowing one to leave behind worries and problems. Sometimes we all need that break, that escape, even if it's only for a short time.
