Maybe reading was just a way to make her feel less alone, to keep her company. When you read something you are stopped, the moment is stayed, you can sometimes be there more fully than you can in your real life.
Books don't change people; paragraphs do, Sometimes even sentences.
Life is too short to read books that I'm not enjoying.
Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter.
But, how do you know if an ending is truly good for the characters unless you've traveled with them through every page?
[I] read books because I love them, not because I think I should read them.
Simon Van Booy
You're never alone when you're reading a book.
