The excitement of reading a new book is indescribable. It’s like dating a new person, travelling to the most favourite tourist destination, riding a bike with a complete stranger, or whatever and it depends on people. To me it is like excitement of meeting new people, getting along with them, get to see their life closely and finally living the character life. Such is my love for book!
Choosing a new book based on the blurb, reviews and ratings, and finally deciding to buy the book is a nice feeling. At times, as I write book reviews, I do receive author signed copies… it is a beautiful feeling. Getting book as a gift is something I love the most… but what happened today is ultimately satisfying… the colleague who I mentioned on Day 10 along with his friend, came to me in the morning and handed over a book.
“We are not sure what kind of book you read, but from your writing we can very well understand that you love romance. So we thought why not gift a book from a genre that’s totally opposite to what you read and gave me a book – Confession of a Buddhist Atheist by Stephen Batchelor.”
I glowed in happiness and thanked them from my heart and soul. I am going to start the book tonight. Once I complete I shall surely write about it.
How will you feel before starting a book? And after completing the book? Post in the comment section!
And here is a small poem dedicated to Vidhya…
Just like you do to me;
When every time I feel upset,
You make me feel happy!
The characters live inside,
And make me smile and cry;
Like you rule my heart,
And make me go mad in love!
