Being a Bookworm
May 2, 2016 11:28pm CST
Good day to all the myLotters out there. One of my pleasures in life is reading a good book. I started young when it came to reading. I would read anything and everything I could get my hands on to. No genre is off limits to me... crime mysteries, action, suspense, science fiction, biographies, and even the occasional rom-com. I would read it all. Sometimes I find myself reading two to three books at a time. I would spend my 'me' time curled up in a ball and losing myself in the worlds that came alive with every letter, every word, and every chapter. Each turn of the page is a new journey and adventure to be experienced. As fast as I would finish a book, I'd immediately start a new one to read. No day passed that I didn't picked up one of my books and read. Now, even with the advent of technology, I find myself sticking to books... actual hard bound books, printed in ink. I have my kindle but nothing beats the feeling of turning the pages and looking at the creases of the covers and spine admiring each as if it were a mark of beauty. Any other bookworms out there?

I love to read books... once you get to read a book, there's no stopping there. However, my work and projects don't allow me to read a lot. So, I just read a book whenever I have some spare time. I'm currently, re-reading The Godfather... :)
I used to be a bookworm but my reading has declined these past few years. I must admit that I, like you much prefer the feel of a real book and the turning of physical pages. But since I have bought my tablet, I also will admit that I enjoy reading books on it especially when I am travelling either by bus or just visiting my in laws on the weekend. Bringing a small tablet is easier than bringing a book which can be very bulky depending on the number of pages. I guess that I enjoy both the old fashion and the new technology. But thank you for your post and giving me and everybody else the opportunity to respond.
It's good that you're a bookworm. Seldom you can find people like you these days. Things you read from books stay longer in the memory than those you see on DVD (book stories made into movies). The students of yesterday who read books learned much better and spoke and wrote English well than those who do not.
