Original Writings

Reading Vicariously means actively imagining yourself in the world of the book. Immersion is necessity, and each book is a new world to explore and life to live.

Reading Vicariously also means reading with empathy for the characters. It’s about putting yourself in their shoes, even if they’re very different from you.
