      Personally, I’m most interested in the pure bliss of consumption.

      The mere joy of doing, having, just being.

      I think the ultimate act of love is to be able to describe someone very specifically. And of course you can usually be more coherent and articulate in writing than you are in conversation. So in that way love on the page is more genuine than love in real life.

      OMG...balancing a plethora of non-linear drop-in reads lately whilst maintaining a Focused Core linear read of a handful.

      Many of us here can whole-heartedly relate, Ava.

      Because reading is just brushing up against someone else’s mind. Sometimes you’re so enamored that you want to read everything they’ve ever read just to be a little closer to them.
