For the love of books…(and Ben)

That adrenalin rush, the excitement in the pit of your stomach, wanting to spend every free second together, enjoying the quiet moments, not being able to put them down. Here’s why I think that reading a good book and loving a good person are almost the same thing…

1. READING: When you are reading your book you can’t think of anything else. LOVING: When you are with your beau you can’t think of anyone else.

2. READING:  It’s what is on the inside that counts. LOVING: It is what is on the inside that is supposed to count.

3. READING: You will stick up for a book you believe in no matter what anyone else says. LOVING: You will stick up for your partner no matter what other people may say.

4. READING: A book can make you happier than you have ever been and sadder than you ever thought possible all at once LOVING: Ditto

5. READING: You don’t go anywhere without your book (even the toilet) LOVING: You don’t go anywhere without your lover (except maybe the toilet. That’s right, I said maybe – who said romance is dead?)

6. READING: You can get so absorbed that you forget to eat or at least end up spilling half of your food down you if you attempt both activities at the same time. LOVING: You are so obsessed with your dear one that you don’t need sustenance from anywhere else (okay this one is a lie, I still need cheese).

7. READING: Life is not as fulfilling without a good book. LOVING: Life is nothing without love in it.

8. READING: You take your book to bed. LOVING: Need I say more?

9. READING: Involves words and interpretation. LOVING: Involves talking and communication.

10. READING: A good book is impossible to forget. LOVING: The love of your life is unforgettable.

P.s Don’t look at me like that, of course I love you more than books Ben. I promise!
