We asked APL Teens- why do YOU love books?
“I like books because you don’t judge the characters by their looks. You judge them by their personality.” -Torey Claire
“I love books because they help me escape from my life and enter another. They are beyond cool and characters can be someone you want to be or someone you relate to.” -Lydia
