Can’t Do without………Reading #BlogChatter #Prompt


The first time I read an excellent book, it is to me just as if I had gained a new friend. – Oliver Goldsmith

I can’t do without reading. Flipping the pages and inhaling the mesmerizing smell of a new book never fails to give me the greatest happiness.

When bookstores visit has transformed into online browsing for books , the delivery package with my new books gives me a reason to jump.It’s amazing really, how you travel to places one can only dream of and meet people from countries you never knew existed, without ever having to leave home. The many different emotions you can feel for a fictional character makes you forget they are fictional sometimes. A good book and a comfortable chair to sit on is all I need to make me happy at the moment. It’s an addiction really. An addiction I’m sure lots of you would admit you have. An addiction i am proud of. This is an addiction which should be embraced and passed on to many others.

You can call me a book worm, a nerd, a person who spends a lot on books, who is always on search of good reads……….but this is who i am: I can’t do without reading.

The love of books is a love which requires neither justification, apology, nor defense. – J.A. Langford

  1. I am also a book lover but prefer a book store more than online retailing . So many words inside a room , so many characters confined in the pages . Nice one

    1. I prefer book stores too Anindya but no time left after work so flipkart and Amazon come to rescue.

  2. I’m an avid reader too…and prefer book in hand to the digital ones. So what are you currently reading?

    1. Hi Aditi

      I prefer book in hand too, I just can’t read from Kindle
      Presently reading – The year of Runaways, last of my booker shortlist collection

  3. I’m an avid reader too! Love the feel of books in hand. I still have to get accustomed to reading ebooks. So, what are you currently reading?
