Books mean the World to me! #FridayReflections

Books mean the world to me! A world without books would truly be my worst nightmare! Imagine no books and no bookstores! Imagine a single day going by without reading!

Ever since I learnt to read, books have been my constant companions. They’ve been there with me in my happy times. They’ve helped me create happy moments.

Books have been unconditional companions. Long journeys have turned swift with my nose in a book. I no longer detest waiting rooms, airport lounges, long queues, as long as I have a book in hand and two in the bag. Click To Tweet

My favourite friends are the ones who are never punctual, as waiting for them ensures I can read up a couple of chapters.

There are books that are quick reads, much like junk food. You read them, you enjoy them and you forget all about them.Then there are the stories that touch your soul. The ones that subtly change you, slip into your conversations and find a home in your thoughts and heart.

Is there anything like a bad book? I would say the jury is still out on that thought!


Books are the cheapest holidays, and you don’t even need to pack for them. Books take you places, yes even the ones you may not want to go to. Books are time machines, the take you back in time and show you how the future could be.

Books are teachers, imparting lessons you need and advice you thought you didn’t.

I love books so much that I welcomed the Kindle with open arms as it only meant more books waiting to be read even as I read one.

Books are not just words spilled onto pages. They are thoughts and emotions that find the people they want to connect to. Click To Tweet

Sometimes you find a book and at other times a book finds you, and more so when you need it the most.

  1. Reading books sure is a time travel. Got reminded of how I used to read books in my college. Nicely written.

    1. Thanks for reading, Srinivasan.

  2. You said it…sometimes a book finds you. I loved your take on the prompt, Mayuri. Ever since I started with Nancy Drew in my school days, I fell in love with reading. And there was no looking back.

  3. interesting thoughtful articles

  4. I am intrigued by the thought that there is no such thing as a bad book. There can be books written badly, but each of them represents the thoughts and work of someone. Most books will never be best sellers, but they are all important in their own way.

  5. You’re right. Queues and waiting rooms are no longer a hassle to me. If I don’t have a book, I have my tablet or even my cellphone where I have the Kindle app so can continue to read my book! Thanks for sharing. Thankful Thursday Week 20 and how to make blogging friends

  6. I never thought of books as time machines but that is just so true. I loved that statement.
