Why I love Books


A book is truly the only companion who would not deceive you no matter what ! After a long tiring day at work she welcomes you to hold her in your hands and bring her close to your heart. She is warmed by the shine in your eyes you have when you look at her affectionately. 

She would love you no matter how many pages of her you fold when you don’t find a bookmark. She never complains when you drop some food on her just because you cannot keep her down even while having your dinner. She romances with you till midnight. Compels you to keep awake with her cuddling in your lap in the dim midlight. She is your cafene to keep awake. She loves to fall asleep besides you, in your arms.

She is enchanted when you open up her pages from the middle and smell her queer smell. She is always with you to wait when others are late and gives you the best company. She gives you dreams that become your dreams. She teaches you to live, care and love. She shows you what’s right and what’s wrong. She gives you tears and she gives you smiles. She compels you to laugh till your tummy hurts when you’ve had the worst days at work. She gives you hope that the story hasn’t ended yet when suddenly all your life appears gloomy and dull. She keeps your special roses in her care which make you nostalgic years later for those memories.

She is a best friend who is always there for you when no one else is by your side. She is always on your bed side table waiting for you. She inspires you when you think you have lost it completely. She moves you from a stone heart to a warm hearted person with her heart warming tales. She teaches you to have faith in humanity, give life a second chance, move ahead and love life for everything it bestows. She teaches you everything.

She is your friend, lover, teacher, personal coach, shoulder to sob, pillow to hold tight and laugh loud. She is a friend who will be with you in your bag at 3 pm in the noon as well as 1 am at midnight.

Cherish her and make her your best friend and you will never be alone.

  1. […] Back in 2014, when I started Decoding Happyness – I was deep into reading. Mostly fiction. I would read past 3 AM on a workday and almost all day over the weekends. I read the Harry Potter series in about 2 weeks while working full time and they remain my favorite to date. Tuesdays with Morrie was yet another book which left a deep imprint on me. […]
