A Dream Within

Forget Her

by Holly Riordan

The Mountain Is You

by Brianna Wiest

Books aren’t an antiquated technology. Books are cutting-edge technology. In fact, books are the greatest virtual reality machines on the market. While virtual reality engulfs the brain to present a different reality, books engage the brain and present a different reality through a more creative exchange between medium and self.
