A thousand pages I have not read

Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not read yet. – Cassandra Clare

How true is this quote? It can be taken a couple of ways.

Firstly, think of the life your living. How many days, hours, minutes we have. Each is a new page, we just need to turn it to see what’s coming next. Comparing life to a book is the literally the most beautiful comparison I can think of.

Le’s look at it a second way. How many lives have you lived through reading? Looking at my Goodreads account, I’ve lived more than anyone could, and I don’t regret it one bit. Hundreds of thousands of pages turned, lived through, emotions experienced. And the dreaded To Be Read list, daunting though so many find it, are just more lives to be lived, experiences to be had. I want to consume them all.

Readers, how do you feel about this quote? Does it make you feel excited, or scared, or impressed? Let me know, I’d love to chat about it.
