Usually, readers are thought to be gentle, quiet souls. People may say we have “old souls, we’ve lived so many lives.” Which is true, if you count the number of characters we’ve been, places we’ve traveled and the sheer berth of our imaginations. However, this list is anything but gentle, it roars like you do. Whether you roar like a “sucking dove” or a lion, (thank you, Shakespeare) when you read, you roar.
