This is a blog about books and the worlds they transport you (with some of my own musings and writings mixed in). Reading “vicariously” has added immense value to my life, and I love having the opportunity to share my passions and thoughts with others! Read on, and enjoy!

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.
