Write Tribe Festival of Words-2: Books

Today is Day Three and I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words December 8-14, 2013. The Theme for today is Books.

The scent of the books neatly placed on the shelves races the imagination wild with meaning.

As we bury our neck deep into books, we sashay in a dream world cut off from the boring existentialism.

Beautifully etched characters provide the figment for identity as we are carried away into the world of super heroes, romance, science fiction, poetry and erotic love.

Myriads of dreams expressed and lived through the creative minds of authors,

as we charter to territories that were unknown to us.

The scent that only book lovers can smell and, very rarely, we express deceit coz the scripts never disappoint us.

The sixth sense imbibed in us sense beauty as we lay our fingers  on the book cover and pulsates the mind as we reach our destination.

What we need is to hop on the train of books and be transported in a world of pure ecstasy.

All we desire is to live in the bubble forever and never to wake up from the amazing journey of books.

Books churn out stories that we could never experience in real life as we inhabit the characters.

It’s pure ecstasy that only die-hard romantics like us can experience.

It’s our world.

How can book worms like us resist the urge of penning our dreams in a book?

Book lovers like us nurture the secret dream of scripting our own stories and see our names on the shelves occupied by millions of authors.

Book lovers, let’s run our imagination wild, rush the adrenaline down the spine, indulge in script orgies and let the words flow like the ocean coz we are crazy minds.

To all the book worms, make some noise in our world.

Happy Reading




Work-in-progress, seeker and bundle of contradictions. Stubborn and Refusal to grow up and constantly in search of myself, I blurt it out on my space. Drop in and share some love. Indian by choice.

  1. Every single word and every single line of your post reverberates with my thoughts… books are a dreamy world indeed, into which i want to escape and never come back to reality… and yes, there’s this wish of penning down my own script, stories and verses since very childhood… loved reading this post…

    1. I am glad we could connect Pratikshya on the love for books and I prefer the escapist world. You should pen ur thoughts and I dream the day when I’ll find my name on the shelf of Indian authors at Landmarks. Wish the same for u:)

  2. I started reading at a very young age. It helped that my sis already had a good range and so I started on Enid Blyton when I was in Grade 1 😀 The love remains but the subject changed. Meaning I don’t read much fiction now 🙂

  3. Lovely.. ‘All we desire is to live in this bubble forever’ that’s so true when we’re reading a good book. We just never want it to end.

  4. To all the book worms, make some noise in our world.

    I would like to say , bookworms , let us all scream in silence to wake up to reality.

    Loved your write-up and am sharing on my TL.

  5. I like my kindle books now – so much easier to port around. But books are books and they take us into unknown worlds. What would we do without books.

  6. Can totally relate to what you are saying. Nothing beats holding a hard copy of a book, lazing on the sofa and being transported into our own world of imagination. Can never get used to audio books and ebooks. And the joy of meeting someone who feels the same way about books… brilliant. Great post 🙂

  7. absolutely!! we don’t need any other company other than books…and we must be the only breed, for whom waiting time is not a pain…..!!!
