I Found Magic



Each page opens up a new world,
world that tells you a story

Every word leaves impressions,
impressions that pass the test of time

Living and breathing in between the lines,
lines that offer you comfort and ecstasy

 Drawing you in for endless hours,
hours spent away from reality

Being a friend and lover passionately,
passionately teaching you lessons unsaid 

Filling barren spaces on your shelves,
shelves that would otherwise bring an uncanny emptiness 

An immortal fire burns,
burns hidden desires and unleashes radical thoughts

A four letter word is all,
all of the universe in its palm

Changing lives with magic,
magic that touches them eternally



I can't begin to describe the relationship I share with books because it is truly unlike any other human relationship. It's something beyond words, beyond feelings and emotions. It's above expectations, above trust and above material bonds.

I don't need to ask them to stay, because I know they will.
Without asking them to help me through tough times, they offer their worthiest advice.
I've never asked them to make me laugh or cry, but they never disappoint. 
Books are more than just pieces of paper held together with a string. 
They are life. 

HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY

Tweet with me all day on @Sonshu as I tweet about books. 
Join me on #HappyWorldBookDay and don't forget to tag me, so I can see what books mean to you.

MAY THE BOOK BE WITH YOU

Love,
Sonshu


P.S: There goes another attempt at describing my relationship with books through words and some lines I penned down quickly.

  1. I love how interactive your blog is. All bibliophiles will be with you on this that besides a dog, a book is probably a man's best friend.

  3. There's nothing like a really good book. It can truly pull you in and capture you with its words.

  5. Sonshu,

    Visiting after a long time. Read all current posts. So how is the free bird after examinations? Living it up? Previous post leaves one sad. Books are very rightly called the BEST FRIENDS.

    Take care
