Curl Up with a Good Book

October 31, 2006


Curling up with a good book is a favourite past time ever since my childhood.


Reading stretches our soul by offering new ideas and experiences. Having acres of time to immerse ourselves in a rousing adventure story or hours to indulge in a passion for understanding a favourite subject creates a mini-vacation in a busy life.


We don’t have to wait for a vacation to have time for a good book. Even if we only have a half-hour, we can still savor a taste of the luxury of getting lost in a good book. 


 Everywhere I have sought rest and not found it, except sitting in comfortable armchair with a book.

    The Imaginations that goes wild when having a book is intense and satisfying…
    I remember holding a book and reading it non stop for days, ignoring even sleep

    Yep, I did that before, too. Hehe.. 😉

    Have a good week ahead of you… and take care even with the work load…

    Thanks & HUGS, my friend. 😀

    i always allow at least 30 minutes before bed for some quality time with my book du jour, more if i can’t put it down because it’s so good!

    I know the exact feeling, Lil.  😀

    oh books! any nice titles to suggest? i’m sort of beginner in reading novels. somehow i’m attracted to chic lit because its fun unlike the ordinary fiction. weird isn’t it?

    Nope, that’s not weird. I know of some guys who reads more chic lit than I do. Hehe.. 😉

    Nice titles? Can’t think of any new ones right now. I’ve been re-reading my old English Literature books. Currently reading “Persuasion” by Jane Austen.

    I can speak of my own benchmark for gauging how good a book is. How intense was the impetus did it produce? Was it written merely to galvanize? Only to make moolah? Or was it written to inspire?

    Hey Dan, I think you’ll write a good book review. 😀

    Still on the lookout for a good book, damn that Dan Brown for heightening my standards! LOL!

    Haha.. 😆

    Btw, how are you enjoying “PS. I love you”?

    I only wish I have the time to read a book from cover to cover, like the good old days …

    Hey! 30 minutes of reading a day can be very fruitful. That’s how much time I set aside to read – regardless of how busy I am. 😉

    Ahh… Books, can’t live without them! Best ever invention humans have created next to toilet paper hehe

    Haha.. I never thought anyone would make such a comparison. 😆

    welcome back girl!

    I did have a good rest. Thanks & HUGS, FA. 😀

    Reading opens the door to another world. A world of fantasies, of truth, or anything you want it to be. The perfect escape? A book. 🙂

    Well said, Vern. 😀
