I’m from Mexico. I’ve been in Tucson 10 years. Right now I’m a server at a restaurant and I go to school. I should be graduating in May. Once I’m done I want go into book publishing. I want to do more of the reading than the writing. I get writer’s block. Right now I’m reading Book of Life, the last in a trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I’ve re-read it three times in the last year. I love books! I want to bring more books to people and help them find the joy that I find in books. Sometimes we don’t have the means to go and travel other places but we can see other places through books. We can also find, like, safe space in books. Maybe you’re having a bad day or, like, a bad week and you can immerse yourself in a book and for that little time that you’re reading, you’re in that book so you can forget about everything else.
