readingReading – the very word helps me relax every time I think about it. The lovely feeling I get of holding a book in one hand and a coffee mug in the other cannot be explained in words. You should experience it to believe it.

There can be nothing as relaxing as reading a book especially when I am feeling low and totally drained of energy. Reading a good book can energize you to no end. I have experienced this many times in the past.

Of late, my reading time has been drastically reduced due to my work online – I have a part-time work-from-home job online – but I do ensure that I get to read a book at least once in 2 weeks.

When online, after completing my everyday tasks, I browse various blogs and websites reading interesting stuff and I feel happy getting to know so many new things.

Earlier, when I was younger, it used to be a book a day; I used to be a voracious reader then. I used to read a book and recommend it to my mother if it was good because she did not have a lot of time for it. But she would read a book if I recommended it and we used to discuss the book at dinner when the entire family gathered and talked about the day’s events. That was a golden period in my life.

Even today, when I read a book, I think of the olden times when life was not so stressful as it is now but we must appreciate the fact that change is inevitable in life. Now I am happy that I get at least some time to indulge in my favorite pastime – reading.



When the internet became popular, there was this doubt that reading physical books will take a back seat but it is amazing how people still love to read a book because the joy of holding a book in hand is an exceptional feeling and cannot be compared to anything else.
