Why are books are my friends?

When you never find anybody beside you and you are bored, pick up a book and delve into the world of imagination, where you will find enough company to last a lifetime.

I believe in these words from the bottom of my heart. To tell the truth, I had never had much of a friend. So I have never been able to trust anyone much. So from my childhood, I had been a bookworm. I found all company in it, all emotions in them and I slowly lernt to trust them, to love them.
