This post is to everyone who carries books around with them wherever they go.
It's for those who have found in books, their BFFs--best fictional friends(because who can understand you better?).
To anyone who's been made fun of for having his nose stuck in a 500+ page novel.
It's to those who've been told that reading as much as they do makes them boring.

That is all. In true Willy Wonka fashion, I bid you all a good day.
