By Adrian Hughes ’21

Books are like a movie but in our minds.

Books allow us to leave our current reality.

Books allow us to venture among those who exist,

only among our minds.

Books allow us to do things we never thought possible

And leave the physical limits of this world.

Even if just for a second, books allow us to forget about all our problems, and take a journey,

through the eyes of someone else.

Words shift into images, feelings, sounds.

A portal to a new world.

A portal to a new universe.

An infinite number of possibilities.

Journey to the far reaches of the universe, and sleep among the stars.

Travel across the land, and defeat a dragon.

Find love, and share it with those around you.

Reach to those around you, and solve a mystery.

Enter a haunted house, and feel the thrill of excitement.

Enter the past, and learn the stories of those who have past.

An infinite number of possibilities.

Pick up your book, and return home.

An infinite number of homes.
