This is really interesting to me. I was just thinking the other day of what a refuge books provided for me when I was a young child. I taught myself to read when I was three, and in retrospect, I think it was really a self-protective mechanism - since I couldn't physically escape from my environment, at least I could get out of there mentally for a while. I spent my entire childhood reading anything I could get my hands on...children's books, adult books, cookbooks, my mom's magazines, the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous (dad was a member)....literally any printed material in the house. And then I was an English Literature major in college...go figure! LOL

I've thought about revisiting my childhood books, but I'm not sure if it would be soothing (remembering the comfort they gave me as a child) or painful (remembering the reasons I was so desperate to escape). Hmmm.
