Meet Rachel Gross. She is… a reader. “I have lived most of my life in the same town, surrounded by the same walls. Yet I call myself a journeyer of foreign lands, diverse peoples, and new experiences. I have been able to live an adventurous life through literature, novels which take me on unimaginable journeys. That is the beauty of the novel and the novelist: societal boundaries are pushed, tangible moments are entangled in magic, and nothing becomes impossible. Reading has allowed me to understand that with an open, creative, and thoughtful mind, I can forever live without limits.”
