The World of Books
This is my first post. So let me introduce myself through my bio-poem.
I am my own person
A non-conformist to the core
If all of us were replicas
Life then would be a bore.
I never confine myself to rules
I do pretty much as I please
I listen to my inner voice
Rules make me ill at ease.
I am the shy type
I am fine, it’s me
I love lonely contemplation
I delight in my company, you see.
Rules on how to eat right, speak right, dress right
A disaster to me spells
Follow all these I might
If only I were someone else.
Reading is my passion
Books my greatest treasure
Books are my addiction
Oh what endless pleasure.
I never insist others conform to such and such
I have tolerance for others differences
Let others be themselves pretty much
Happy with their own preferences.
Married to a man divinely blessed
Kind, humble, down-to-earth
Home is filled with happiness
Contentment, joy and mirth.
Live and let live, my motto in life
Happiness and contentment my goal
Greatly fear war and strife
I am myself, the unique human soul.
My favorite memory of my childhood is the pleasure of reading books.I loved living in the world of books. Books are rich treasures which transport you to distant lands. Books have given wings to my imagination, books widened my horizons and increased my knowledge, giving me insights into other minds, other lands and other cultures. Books enrich my mind, provide knowledge, entertainment and pleasure. Reading inspires imagination and fuels creativity. As Henry Ward Beecher said, “Nowhere is human nature so weak as in the bookstore”, something I can vouch for, being an avid reader.
One of my favorite books is “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte. I also love “The Post Office” by Rabindranath Tagore, which I read as an 11-year old. The memory of Amal, the child still lingers on, to this day. A very poignant write.
Which is your favorite book? Why?
