    Oh how I relate to this post. I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't reading. I've never been told 'when' I started but I know it began farther back in time than my memory can reach. I can remember some of my first books "See Jack run" "See Jack hop". I was fascinated with Jack and his dog Spot. Even then I could imagine myself running and hopping with Jack. When my six siblings were watching Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck I was in my room reading the Laura Ingells Wilder series or the Nancy Drew Mysteries. I was transported to the prairies of Kansas or I was tip-toeing through the ally ways in search of kidnappers and thieves. I don't know what my life would have been like without books. I loved them then, I love them now and I have difficulty parting with them. I only recently donated text books that are over 20 years old, I have children's books that are now collectors items. I have the works of Plato, the John Redfield series, books to help me learn German or learn to knit, I know how to pick out safe mushrooms in the forest, and a first edition of Silent Spring.
    They are all full of Words and words bind humanity together, no matter what language we each may speak, we all share a valuable treasure: Words. And aren't they fascinating!

    The Gift of Reading

    #13 I believe such dialogue exists and its ongoing with characters and author. There are many instances in which this connection will be more noticeabe or obvious depending on style. But even when, lets say, an indirect style or a self effacing style is being used in which the author is making an active effort to not be noticed in the text, there is always a connection. I was actually going more for the connection you experience when reading certain lines in a book which reflect your sate of mind very Well (regardless of whether this is done purposedly) 😊

    To add a nuance, certain best-sellers of today are no more than a very commercial movie, only in words and their reach for creating experiences is therefore as limited as that of those. (Not necessarily bad; sometimes you may want exactly that.)
    However, even those are magic in the sense that something as boring as words over paper sheets tied together become a full five-sense Universe the moment you start reading.

    #9 I read somewhere about some kind of dialogue you establish with the writer when you are reading.
    And I can notice it; I can almost perceive him talking to me "from the other side".
    And I would extend that to any form of art, whether plastic or audiovisual.
    You can definitely feel the author's presence, sending a message to you.

    I actually like it better when its raining, si está genial, cuando llueve, (creo que no habia hecho alusión a eso, y miro mi comentario)
    Is it really sunny when you read?
    ¿Realmente es soleado cuando lees?. ¿Pero qué...? Yo no habia puesto eso, me la ha jugado el traductor.

    La frase que yo queria decir es ¿estás realmemte sol@ cuando lees?. Are you really alone
    when you read? (hay diferencia entre sunny y alone, la proxima vez estaré más atenta 😅).

    Afortunadamente ese concepto lo has captado y conectamos.

    "The feeling of intimacy -the connection you experience when you read- is often enough to make you feel cherished and content. There is a sense of community in reading".

    Is it really sunny when you read? has anyone thought that you are socializing with the author or the author of the book, in addition to the character or characters? I love to read, you get answers and new questions glow in your mind. Stephen King my favorite writer. Thank you @María Álvarez Fernández, for such a pleasant reading.

    Sorry, Renée, I thought you said "raid" not "paid" and started climbing out my window. No, writers don't get paid much. We also carry a lot more responsibility. For instance, I have to pay for returned books. Most writers I know are doing something else. My publisher even suggested I do something else. He could hear my stomach growling over the phone. Actually, it was my dog, but I thought if my agent thought I was starving, he'd send a little something. He did. He sent a little royalty cheque. Even my dog laughed at the amount. #24

    Not much to add really. I was fortune to read it about 10 years ago in a edition with both parts I and II. I don't remember that much about the book, but the reading experience itself brings me beautiful memories. As Maya Angelou said, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." And this is definitely how I feel about Don Quixote.

    Congratulations for your post, @Gert Scholtz. Just want to say something: Have a look at my profile.
    One of my favourite quotes of El Quijote, because it says so much with so little words is "ladran, Sancho, luego cabalgamos"
    "They bark, Sancho, it means we are riding"
    The meaning of it is that when people criticise you, it means that you are making something they don't.

    The terms ‘communications’, ‘strategy and business development’ and ‘growth’ have become overused during the last decade and have become devalued as a result. In this book, Meaningful Conversations aims to simplify these terms and to re-value management and leadership by addressing topics and subjects in each distinctive chapter, and in an accessible way. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MZ96P8T/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1484305287&sr=8-3&keywords=meaningful+conversations Geoff Hudson-Searle

I soon began to realize, that my unconscious decisions or habits were the results of what I thought about most. So, I changed my environment. I choose to change who I thought were my close friends years ago, and found people who wanted me to grow, and began to read. I read, not to finish an assignment, yet to grow myself.
    Within one year, my life took a entire 180.
