Literature is Intriguing

The Power of Literature


     I enjoy reading all types of literature.  I find it an avenue whereby I can expand my knowledge, get emotionally involved, escape reality, and allow it to affect my life.  Many times a piece of literature will cause me to laugh or cry.  The emotions that come from reading can prove to captivate my attention, and at times allow me to escape reality, and delve into another world for a short time.  However, the greatest power literature has on me is when it actually causes me to change the way I live my life.
