It was a small slice of heaven, and I came in every chance I got just to be around the books. Books were my solace, my escape. There was nothing like that feeling of holding a book in your hand and traveling to another place, another time… another life. I was called a nerd a lot because of it, but I didn’t care. I wear that hat with pride.
