Mortality in Pages

I came to the startling realisation the other day: I can never read every book in the world. It’s the definition of impossible.  I can never even read every book I’ve ever wanted to read.

I could quit my job and never work another day in my life. I still wouldn’t be able to read everything I want to read.

I’m pretty sure even if I could unhinge my jaw and swallow every book I came across and somehow read them that way I would never be able to read all the books in the world.

There is just not enough time in a day, not enough space in my library, not enough heartbeats in a lifetime.

Then I thought, my concept of mortality is strange, and went back to reading.

I graduated with a BA in English and minors in Film, Women Studies, and Religion and Culture. I adore fantasy and sci-fi, especially when it comes to the YA section, but that doesn't mean I don't read anything else. When I'm not reading, I'm writing, biking, taking my dog for long walks or watching anime.

Have your say!
