International Author's Day Blog Hop: For Me, Books Are Forever


This event is hosted by the wonderful DDS, who has herself been an inspiring blogger, and she blogs at B00kR3vi3ws

This year, I talk about how like homing pigeons, books and I always return to each other <3 b="">

My reading journey, this past year was the most unusual one. in my final year of graduation, leading a student publication, working as a journalist for another, and holding a position in the college department, while filing applications for further studies wasn't an ideal circumstance for me to take out time for sleeping, let alone reading tastefully. I was trying to use commute time initially to make up for the lost reading time, but within a few days, the commute time became work time too, as i made frantic calls to sponsors and brands and team members. 

Sleeping for a paltry four hours didn't help the cause, and to my anguish, when I tried to get back to regular reading, I found it really hard to concentrate. 
I was so used to the instant gratification and instant assessment of social media because of the publication I worked at, it became hard to draw pleasure out of reading which took its time, which necessitated one to draw the nectar slowly and savour it. 

So, I decided not to give up, and make a comeback. I started by reading novels that I could  read and finish off easily. Then, i hopped onto denser novels, and here I am within a month, talking about classics and whatnot. 

Bottom Line: All books serve a purpose, and words can save a life, time and again.

On this occasion, I am giving away a copy of An Audience With Lama and these pretty bookmarks by Book Lovers Society.
