With the really long span of time that I've taken to come back for this next blog, B should surely stand for 'Busy' (And true that it is one common thing that most of us face in life - Everyone a busy bee, no one can be seen as free!) but this is NOT what the B is going to be about today....
"They come in all sizes, although the shapes are usually the same
Whispering secrets, declaring history, while some play an intriguing game
Rich in knowledge, treasury of insight, the are always ready to share
Pick up one and life will change; no time to stand and stare!"
Let me just make it simpler - Books!!!
Endless pages of letters in different fonts and sizes... Each one with a different story to share... Some are filled with rosy love, while some talk about timeless wars. Some reveal the secrets of a being while some let loose the ingredients on how to make a dish better, while some others simply talk about how to make yourself better! The more the people we have on Earth, the more perspectives we have to share and the more books we have to enjoy! :)
Books are truly one of the best friends one can make, and so here's putting down ten reasons why a book makes for a great friend in your life....!
Reason #1 - Books are always there, no matter what!
Whether its 2 am at night or 5 am in the morning, a book will never mind you picking it up and wanting to spend some lone time with it - no questions asked.
Reason #2 - Easy to find!
While true and honest friends may be difficult to find in today's times, a good book worth spending time on is easy to find and easier to retain.. ;)
Reason #3 - Loads to share and learn!
It is often said that people inspire you or drain you - pick them wisely! But you can carelessly toss away this precaution when it comes to choosing a book! No matter which you pick, there'll definitely be something to learn and share.
Reason #4 - Rich source of advice!
While friends are always there to seek advice in times of need, but just in case none of your buddies are able to help you through the storm - worry not - The right book is just round the corner! All you need to know is where to find it and the answer to your problem hidden in those pages will find you.
Reason #5 - Don't mind sharing space!
Friends often become jealous of the other buddies that may encroach upon their time and space, but these little bundles of bound sheets are more than happy to fill up every nook and corner with more of themselves - no jealousy at all!
Reason #6 - Can wait forever!
You pick up a little darling at a stall one fine day, and then get so busy living the super demanding hot shot life of yours that you completely forget about the new friend of yours - no matter! Look deep into your closet and it'll still be waiting patiently for you to cuddle it up into your hands - no grudges whatsoever!
Reason #7 - Make you richer!
Yup! The more you have, the more you learn.... The more you learn, the richer you get! (Now please!!! Did you seriously think I was talking about money?!)
Reason #8 - Best coffee buddy!
No one to take along for a hot cuppa this evening? Simply grab a book and you'll be amazed how time flies!
Reason #9 - Intoxicating fragrance!
I remember once reading somewhere that the fragrance of books in a library should be bottled up and sold - it would really mint a lot of money cause the fragrance is truly intoxicating! Maybe insignificant but yet another reason to carry a book along.
Reason #10 - Refine and Redefine!
Finding a good friend in a book truly changes your life forever - it refines and redefines! :)
As they say 'Books are a man's best friend' and I totally agree! So next time life offers you a chance to make a new friend, why not try a book and change bit by bit, deep within? :D
