You could be living the life of your dreams.
You could be learning at the feet of the wise.
You could be sharing someone’s pain, and feeling their victory.
You could be living in Narnia, or Middle Earth, or downtown Brooklyn.
You could have a wealth of life experiences to share. Imagine having lived hundreds of times over, and having the accumulated wisdom of a thousand years.
You could get to know people all over the world, from every time and place. You could have conversations with Napoleon, sit at the feet of Aristotle, walk the Middle East with Jesus.
You could probe the brightest minds of science, and be taken up into vast universes you never imagined existed.
You could read the Bible alongside the early church, and sit carefully observant of the lives of the martyrs. You could be inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, or witness the lightning rod that nearly struck Martin Luther.
You could do all of this. It’s accessible to you, to everyone.
But first you have to pick up a book, and make time – to read.
