“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.” – Joyce Carol Oates
We’re all allowed a little self-indulgence on our birthdays, right? I decided to treat myself and created the image above, with my most recently published novel alongside a quote from the literary giant, Joyce Carol Oates. What she says captures exactly how I feel about reading, and I always try to explain the same sentiment to my students. I can only hope that readers might feel this way when reading a book by me.
