    I wanted to say this for my homework but I don't really know how I would translate or if it is appropriate. Is there a Chinese version?

    'reading takes me to a world of my own'

    This is my attempt at translating it...

    看小说运输我 我自己的世界

    please help,
    thank you

    1.运输 means "to transport", so it's not the right verb here.
    Generally, you can translate "to take someone/something to some place" as 某人/某物某个地方(or 某人/某物带到某个地方).

    2.看小说 is "reading novels", and 阅读 is the general word for "reading".

    So for your sentence, 阅读把我带到自己的世界(里)
    Or, 阅读把我带到只属于我的世界--Reading takes me to a world which only belongs to me. (literal translation:))
