I was in second grade when I learned how to read. Books took me out of my harsh surroundings to places I never could have imagined existed. I flew with the Wright brothers, floated down the Missippi with Tom and Huck and spent many days in Sherwood Forest.
I learned about Joan of Arc, King Henery VIII, Mary Queen of Scots. Mark Anthony and Cleoptra. Many historical charaters crossed my path. These people were as real to me as if they were in the same room with me.
When I read my mind flys to where the story is taking place and I become that person. I savor each word and I can smell and feel my surroundings as if I were right in the situation.
Far and away the best book given me was my Bible. Here I found love and compassion, forgiveness and mercy. The most precious thing about this book is that you can take its teachings with you. You don't have to leave them within the pages, you can take them with you within your heart.

Wonderful title! I also especially enjoyed your descriptive first paragraph! There were some spelling and punctuation errors that proofreading could fix, though.

I was totally "in tune" with what you were sharing, as I have experienced similar joys when reading! :)

A good message here about what books can do for your life and enjoyment. Yes, there are a few errors in spelling, but your message is interesting and that's a good start. Good work!

Hm... (thoughtful pose) I've never read a more simple advocation for reading the Bible. Honestly, your word economy is excellent, and your message is straight to the point! It does tarry a bit, just to draw people in, and I think that's what makes this piece effective. You might check the first paragraph for minor typos, though. Overall, an amazing job!
