The first thing you should know is that I love to read. I could read all day if I didn’t have other responsibilities. Just recently I figured out that I want to be a book editor. If I could do whatever I wanted in the world, that would be it. By being a book editor, it doesn’t seem like I could change the world. But books are very important. They let people escape reality, even for a little bit. They give people dreams and goals to achieve. If I was a book editor, I would be able to find books to give to the world that so many people would love. It might only change a couple of people at a time, but it would be worth it. Making a few people happy with just one book would make me happy. And if it changed their life, changed the way they saw the world, I would be ecstatic. That is how I would change the world. One reader at a time. The power of books.
