so being a reader is basically a constant struggle between deciding on reading what you bought recently, what you bought ages ago and should stop ignoring, and what you really ought to reread.

Accurate. This is accurate.

Sometimes people on here will talk about how long their TBR list is and it’s like ~5 books. I have one question for you: How?

He said, ‘These are books, and you can take one home.’ And I’m like, ‘What’s the catch?’

And he explained to me there was no catch …

The books made the difference. By the time I was 15, I knew there was a world outside the camps. I believed I could find a place in it. And I did.

Storm Reyes. 

Storycorps today is a must, must, must-listen. Storm Reyes grew up in migrant labor camps, where she learned how to handle herself in a knife fight before she learned how to ride a bike. There weren’t any books in her life — they were too heavy for families that were always on the move.

When she was 12, a bookmobile came by the camp, and the staffer convinced a hesitant Reyes that she — yes, she — could take books home. She learned about volcanoes and dinosaurs, and came back for more books when she was through.”That started it,” she tells her son in their Storycorps interview — that was the spark that motivated her to seek a life outside the camps.

And when she grew up? She became a librarian.

Give it a listen. There’s no better way to end the week.

Libraries change lives.

Books allow you to be whoever you want to be, to escape yourself for a while.
