The Joy of Reading

Referring to the cornucopia available to the reader, Ben Okri, a Nigerian poet and novelist notes: “…all come to life in the mind, painted into existence by the reader’s creative powers. In this way the creativity of the writer calls up the creativity of the reader. Reading is never passive.”

Wow. No director. No cinematographer. No actors. It all happens within our own minds. Sounds healthier than a couch potato binge. Don’t you think?
