Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
This is so true. A really great book draws you in and makes you apart of the adventure. Which is probably why I love Science Fiction/Fantasy novels and short stories. I get to explore new worlds, cultures, civilizations that I would otherwise never get to explore. I honestly can't say if I would have the courage to get on a spaceship and "go where no man has gone before!" I get tense as it is getting on an airplane to travel to another state! But a book gives me all the sensory exploration of a new world and the adventures that go with getting lost at sea, or being chased by aliens or thwarting hostile plots and take overs. I also love mystery novel, adventure novels and detective novels for this very reason. So the next time you are looking for a wonderful adventure that wont break your budget (or bones in any way :D) pick up a book! Live and re-live countless lives.
