Reading! ah, I can write and write on this one. But the fact that I am late to write on this one is I am busy with my academics research writing thesis project and I need to get done with it. I have written a blog post on reading in 2018 as well.
Reading is everything to me and I am craving to get back to reading books that I wish to read which will take me to another world and help me get an escape from this stressful mundane life. I need to read a lot of books and I am planning to read a lot this year as I am going to finish my Masters studies by the end of May, I think I will be on a reading marathon because I have realized I am lacking behind and I need to read more better books than the choice of books I actually read. It’s time to widen my genres and get more apt with better reading.
I feel I can keep reading and I wish there was kind of a way the more words one reads the more money one gets in its bank account. Lol! Imagination has no bounds. Reading is my favorite past time, it’s like you give me a book that interests me and leave me alone I don’t care. But I am not the kind of person who can read anywhere even in a noisy place and where too much of disturbance is around. I want to be in a peaceful place when I am reading. Books are my best friends.
I find books more comforting than people. I find books talking to me, giving me advice, giving me lessons, wisdom and a lot that I cannot describe it in words. I dream to have my own mini library one day where I have my collection of books and they are mine and just mine. I do have my mini collection of books but they are not enough (to be honest, books are never enough!) I am greedy, hungry for books always.
I carry a book everywhere I go, no matter even if I know I am not going to get to read, I still carry it. It gives me a feeling that I am never alone and a friend (book) is always there with me.
I was not a reader since childhood, but I became one when I was in 7th grade and when I discovered Secret Seven book by Enid Blyton and after that I never found a book that could actually interest me to read until in my 10th grade I was introduced to mills and boons and then in my 20s to Harry Potter (I know too late!) and many more better books (I promise!)
When ever I have felt low in life, reading books have came to my rescue and I love that it’s always been a comfort.
Do you read books? Have any recommendations for me? Which book made you become a lover of books or what/ which book brought your interest to reading?
