When the world seems to be out of control and everything seems to be falling apart, a beloved book has the power to bring some sense to a senseless situation. Sure, it can’t fix what’s wrong or make all our problems go away. Yet, it can make all the difference. It gives us someone who is going through the same issue, wise words that give us hope, and the ability to see the small rays of sunshine through the rain. Most of all, a book reminds us that, no matter how bad things look in the current chapter, there’s a happier place coming up a few chapters ahead.
Books make us feel less alone.
Because of reading we know it gets better.
