A room without books is like a body without a soul.Cicero
Don’t judge me with the title. I am not at all a studious kind of soul. It’s that just I love reading a lot. Being academic and being a bibliophile are two very different things. And obviously, I come under the second classification.🤓
Here my whole blog is wavering around my love for books, their greatness in our existence, few of my favourite books which I think everybody should read at least once in a lifetime and a lot more. So grab a cup of coffee, sit on that favourite corner and assign yourself for this delightful journey.
Before starting anything else I would like to introduce the beginning of this vision and how I became an indestructible part of this quest.
When I was a small kid, my dad used to read books and not to be amazed he is a great writer and I love all his stories. Being a night roamer, I always woke up at midnight and every time I saw him with his writing stocks. I was the person who always acts as a reviewer for his articles. So, as every parent does, he inculcated this beautiful habit in me.
Love you Dad.❤️
When I was small..
I loved to wear your shoes,
loved to read your books,
felt Awesome in your tees,
though I was too feeble for all those, still I always attended your footsteps...
I believe to be in the best state of mind when someone says I have a glimpse of you
Trust me it’s the best compliment I ever got, because I always wanted to be like you.
In my beliefs, In my soul, In every part of existence.
You are always with me.
Thanks for believing in me every time.
Now, back to my real motive behind this post.
Few questions before I start my work.
When was the last time you read a book, or some story or a magazine blog?
Are your daily reading habits centred with Twitter updates or some Facebook articles?
If you are coming under those countless people who keeps reading as the last work of life, then I must say you guys are missing out something.
I’m discussing below few of those major changes I witnessed in myself and some of my best reads till date, alternatively.
If you ask me “What’s reading?”
It’s Meditation which not only rejuvenates your mind or soul but also acts as an exercise for the brain. Just like any other part of our body, our mind does need some work out every day. Playing chess and puzzles can also solve this purpose, but reading has its own advantages. Reading is a form of brain training that begins early in life.
Reading acts as some mentally challenging task which helps in maintaining and building brain cells. Later this compensates for the damage to the brain,which causes Alzheimer’s and dementia, or it simply helps us to preserve our memories.
I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.J.K. Rowling
This one is on the top of my list. An excellent blend of emotions and just perfect in a unique way. If you like happy-go-lucky books, a lot of this might not be for you. But if you can handle some tear-jerking bits in books, then this book should be on your ‘to-read’ list.
IMPROVES KNOWLEDGE AND KEEPS YOU FOCUSED
My father always provoked me to read. He always considers books as the only thing which will stay with me forever. Every book you add to your journey fills your head with some more knowledge and helps you to tackle new circumstances in your life in a better way. If I share my views on reading, previously I recognised my surroundings the way I wanted to understand. Slowly, reading provoked me to get deeper and realize the actual facts behind all the phenomenon happening around me. And gradually, it added peace and stability in my life. I started learning to focus on each and every matter more apparently.
When you read a book, all of your attention is focused on the story—the rest of the world just falls away, and you can immerse yourself in every fine detail you’re absorbing. It works as a clutter clearance of mind and soul.
An hour spent reading is one stolen from paradise.Thomas Wharton
As I was talking about knowing our world better and deeper, here’s my next choice to make it happen. Sapiens – an amazing collection of facts, a person always wanted to merge in. The extended read is well worth your time. The really long history of humankind is portrayed in a vivid and entertaining language throughout the book.
PEACEFUL SOUL BUILDING
I can bet on a lot of topics related to spirituality and mythology.🤓
All thanks to my sweetheart mom. She made me understand all those interrogations I plunged on her just to grab more information related to our folklore.
To my utter surprise, it started working on bringing immense peace and tranquillity to my soul.
Reading spiritual texts can lower blood pressure and bring about an immense sense of calmness. Reading self-help books has been proven to help people suffering from certain mood disorders and mild mental illnesses. So, in any case, it’s a win-win situation.🤓
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.George R.R. Martin
I must say it is the best book of all times I have ever read. This book explains how we can use the law of attraction to attract everything we want in our lives and shows us how to control our thoughts. It is a must-read in order to discover oneself, understand one’s true needs and desires, improve one’s life in every possible aspect and make the most of the power which resides within us through positive thinking.
IMPROVES WRITING SKILL AND MEMORY
Basically, this blog focuses on my tiny tots and growing youths. When people read a lot they gradually start perceiving different writing styles, understanding new words to use in day to day life because they are subconsciously influenced by those reads.
Secondly, when a person reads a book he starts memorising the different characters, their role plays in various plots and subplots, their background etc. This gives some chance of wielding to our brain which improves our memory skills.
You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.Paul Sweeney
Women Who Run With the Wolves is not an easy read. It requires your undivided attention and a lot of commitment. But take that journey and I promise, by its end, you’ll be rewarded with the greatest gift — your soul. It is a book every teenage girl and a grown-up woman should read, a bible of feminine empowerment. Go for it girls.✌️
BOOSTS SLEEP AND KEEPS YOU ENTERTAINED
There is nothing more soothing like falling asleep with a book in your hands. Reading works as a sleeping pill and relaxes your mind and soul greatly when you are super stressed.
It improves your sleep quality and rewards with a deep and restful nap.
Whenever you start reading a book you teleport yourself to a different place. You start living a new life and you feel absolutely amazing and entertained. Yes, this happens but only when you have chosen a good edition.😉
Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well.Mark Haddon
Whenever I start searching for a book I start it by searching love stories first. The notebook, it describes how love should exist between two people and that you should never give up on the one you love. I also enjoyed how their love for each other never ended. I must say it’s my favourite read till date. I saw the movie as well, but reading is always my favourite choice to live a story. Nicolas Sparks is my favorite author.
He writes the sort of tear-jerking love stories you would never expect to come from a man. 😄
He writes about love like every woman wants it to be! ❤️
I hope my readers got the actual sense I wanted to convey in the above lines. My father told me once – KNOWLEDGE is the only thing which increases when shared. And here’s what I’m doing. Passing you all, the keys for growing that inner peace and stability.
You can come back to me for more good read recommendations. Best of luck for a fresh start with best buddies.✌
Much love to all❤❤
