Just Another Book Blogger.

It all started with a single book. Then came another one. Until it became part of my life. A part of my monthly budget, shall i say.

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Books opens up a world full of imagination. Introduce us to a place we'd never been, people(creatures) we've never known, and cultures we're unfamiliar with.

I used to watch movies/ tv series a lot. But now, reading occupies most of my spare time. I simply thought that instead of letting this shows give me the visuals... why not create the visuals myself. It lets me use my own imagination.
My book reading became a book obsession. I always have to buy the next of the series i've been reading. But never did i regret  every dollar i've spent, even if i didn't like it.
I can't leave the house without carrying one, or i'll be restless.
When i'm stressed out i open one to escape for a while. It helps me calm down.

“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
― Stephen King

You will mostly find book quotes from the books I've read. Quotes that made me smile, giggled or melt.
Interactions with fellow bookworms who shares the same passion as i have with these little friend of mine always brings happiness.
Share your books. Share your thoughts. Suppport new writers. And most important of all, don't forget why we all loved reading books.
