Surprising absolutely no one, the answer to this question is books. Books have always fed my soul .Ever since my mother bought me the first Harry Potter book, I have been in love with the world of words. I think being able to see the world through the eyes of someone else; through the eyes of someone who doesn’t live in our world, lets us see reality in new ways. Even if we don’t think the books we read have an effect, they all show themselves in someway.

I’ve honestly always felt that people who read are generally (emphasis on generally. I am generalising) more open-minded than those who don’t. People who read have already walked, metaphorically of course, in thousands of different people’s shoes. We’re already aware of people other than ourselves because we have lived so many fictional lives.

Books, to me, are pure magic. There is no other art form as all-consuming as books.

About Bec Graham

Bec Graham, 24, was born on the wrong continent. Everything from her burns-like-paper skin tone to her inability to cope with the slightest hint of a hot day suggests she should have been born under the gloomy skies and mild sun of the UK. She hopes writing will get her to her rightful home one day. Failing that, she scans the skies for a spinning blue police box, hoping to catch a lift back to the motherland.

    I’m the same. Well, for me it’s reading and television. Fodder to occupy my mind and challenge me at the same time!
