10 things I love about books

love books

1. The smell – old or new, I could sniff books forever
2. The History lessons – I don’t have a great head for significant dates in History but I have a better idea about how it might have felt to be an Empress in Imperial China, a soldier in the war or a slave in your own country.
3. The Opinions – If I have read a good book I love that I can share it with my friends and get their perspectives especially if I have never thought of something the way they have.
4. The Time – Reading a novel is one of the few things that I can do at my own pace with no deadlines, no rushing and with minimal amount of movement.
5. The Characters – friends (or maybe enemies) in waiting to make me laugh, cry, sympathise with or despair of.
6. The Moment – one of my favourite times, in the world, is when I have just finished a book and I go to my bookcase to choose my next book-companion.
7. The infinite – The more books I read the more excited I get about the fact that there are so many books in the world that I will never run out! Although one of my greatest ambitions is to find Bernard’s watch so I can stop time and read them all so you never know!
8. The Art – The skill and mastery involved in writing a good book is something I dream of having.
9. The Impossible – The magic, the vampires, the flying, the places, the imagery, the worlds and having dragons as pets.
10. The love – I love that I love books so much that I can think of 10 things I love about them (Is that cheating?)
