Books are not about passing time. They're about other lives, other worlds. Far from wanting tome to pass, one just wishes one had more of it. If one wanted to pass the time one could go to New Zealand.

I like this. The part about going to New Zealand made me laugh. :)

Ha! Me too. Passing time could be so many things, house cleaning even. Me, though, I would rather read a book.
