Nancy Pearl

"Reading has always brought me pure joy.  I read to encounter new worlds and new ways of looking at the world.  I read to enlarge my horizons to gain wisdom, to experience beauty, to understand myself better and for the pure wonderment of it all.  I read and marvel over how writers use language in ways I never thought of.  I read for company and for escape.  Because I am incurably interested in the lives of other people, both friends and strangers, I read to meet myriad folks and enter their lives - for me, a way of vanquishing the 'otherness' we all experience."
