Do you ever have this weird thing you do when reading/finish reading a book where you narrate things that are going on in your head.
Like, “I sat upon the couch and watched the film on the screen. I don’t know what movie it was but I recognized the actor from previous movies I’d seen a few years ago.
“I rested my hand upon the book, my finger fiddling with the tassel and bead attached to the bookmark. Meanwhile the dog leaned closer into my thigh, his eyes twitching softly as his chest moved up and down rhythmically.
“The cat slinked about under the TV stand, her paws assuredly gliding over the obstacles that lay underneath until she sat and stared at me in my eyes.
“Of course with my knowledge that I had gathered over the course of my 16 years of life, I blinked my eyes slowly at her, and she returned the gesture in a mutual respect.
“Finally I decided to open the worn paperback and continue reading where I left off all those months ago.”
Like does anyone ever do that or is it just me.

Do you have those books that you wish you’ve never read just is you can read them again for the first time .

Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatutes. No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.

So these are all the books I need to read before 16th August to complete one of the items on my ‘before I turn 20’ list. These are just the novels that were already on my to-read shelf when I made the list though. I’m not including the many books I have bought since.

Many people need desperately to receive this message: ‘I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.

Reading is like sex: it’s pleasurable to do it anywhere, but it’s best in bed.

My favorite book in the series. Like fine wine, it gets better as it ages. Love the charm of my torn and battered copy!

I hate it, the lingering feeling when you finish reading something really good, something that took you company for days, and you just sit there, staring blankly at that fin, hollow and lost, wondering absent-mindedly how you’ll ever manage to move on.

We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read.
