I took a survey this morning on Twitter and the final page asked to define what a book is. Here is my definition.
A book is my best friend, it takes me away from the stresses of everyday life and puts me in a world where I know if I don't like what is going on, I can leave without drama or judgement.
If the definition gets chosen it will be in the "50 Books/ 50 Covers" Exhibit in the AIGA Museum in New York for a day.
