From that time on, the world was hers for the reading. She would never be lonely again, never miss the lack intimate friends. Books became her friends and there was one for every mood. There was poetry for quiet companionship. There was adventure when she tired of quiet hours. There would be love stories when she came into adolescence and when she wanted to feel a closeness to someone she could read a biography. On that day when she first knew she could read, she made a vow to read one book a day as long as she lived.
– Betty Smith (“A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”)
I really enjoyed this book, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”, and gave it five stars. This is a coming of age book about a girl growing up in Brooklyn. There are struggles in her life and she often finds comfort in a good book.
I think this quote is true, since there’s a book to match every mood, time, feeling, and personal challenge. We don’t all have to enjoy the same books. Also, we’ll discover that different books have various meanings and change through our life. Go ahead and discover that one particular book that matches exactly as you’re feeling or want to feel.
