The books that I read leave a mark on my soul. I feel like every time you read a good book you get more interesting, smart, brave etc. Every book also carries its own lesson that makes you a better person.
Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee. For so long I have held to hope and prayed to be released from it. Yet, I'm still a prisoner of hope.
