Jillian Lauren, On Reading

"There's only one good reason to be a writer--if reading saved your life. I live to read things that change me so profoundly they alter my cellular structure. I aspire to write words that leave readers transformed. I don't know if I'll ever get there, but that's my goal."

{Jillian Lauren's memoir, Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, was published by Plume in April of 2010. Visit her website

  1. That really struck a cord with me. Reading has always been such a refuge for me :)
