Reading Matters

I recently read a book about a man who trekked into the woods and didn’t return to civilization for nearly 30 years.

When asked by the author/interviewer why he didn’t like to travel and succumbed to the life of a naturalistic hermit, the man loosely said that the only places he ever needed to go were held sacred inside of books.

Ain’t that the truth.

Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling and wanderlusting like it’s a sustainable career role, but book traveling I find to be equally as important.

Whether it’s to another city where the main character resides, or a fantastical world of literal non existence but literature defined reality, or back to a time that no longer exists but is still very much prevalent.

Searching for new reads?

Can’t find that next book to steal away your attention? Be sure to check out my published wares on Amazon. New poetry collection and comedic long-form novel coming soon!

Also, be sure to find me on Instagram @ blankpagesofmine and say hello!

  1. I definitely agree with this. I love travelling but there are some great books out there which will help you around cities and this is great, both on a personal level but also as a research resource for writing 🙂

    1. Our feelings mirror exactly…it’s a two-sided coin where the reader gets to experience a place or a setting without ever having to go there, but along the same lines the writer does their due diligence by traveling to a place and then retelling the story. Love that balance! 😄
