Day 64: Words & books

Books fill us with unconditional hope know? I am re-reading The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak, and I’m able to understand it much better than the first time I read it. In these current times, it is filling me with a profound sense of hope and belief..

I love reading books. For the longest time, I used to borrow books from library. I didn’t prefer buying as mostly I wouldn’t re-read the book and I loved visiting libraries. The collection of those used books gave the feels of old world charm. I have resorted to buying books now as there’s lockdown and I couldn’t go on without reading my dearest books.

To be honest, the desire to read constantly isn’t there anymore. I still want weekends to be filled with adventures and wonder that only a books can provide me with! But I was wondering if I’m going to outgrow books now?! Found these beautiful words that gave me an answer,

When I asked him about this, he said one should keep the intellect satisfied and yet be careful not to spoil it.

The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak

It feels at times that I’m unsure of way too many things. But my love for books is not one of them!
