Bookish Problems!

All my close friends and the some of the followers here know that I am a big time book nerd, reading being my escape from reality. But my nerd problems extent to a deeper level this week. I share here some pictures of my oh-so-consistent trouble. (Courtesy to google)


But I dozed off at 300 pages 😦


Do you think you would be able to live without breathing? DUH!

  1. Haha. The said quotes are apt for the book lovers. Surprisingly, no number of books is enough, there is always the craving to buy more. Especially, the possessiveness for books is comparable to Smeagol’s “my precious”.
    Thank you for such a genuine post.

      1. Haha, I do the same all the time. I recently handed “crime and punishment” to a friend and I have been bugging him ever since. Considering the fact that it’s a 1960 edition and that it requires patience and time to be understood.

  2. Only if it is unbalanced Moushmi, and like everything else in our lives, anything that reaches that point begins to cause problems.
    Find the balance, like taking a walk, smelling a flower…eating even comes in handy too πŸ˜€

  3. Haha…no wonder!! And you actually took pains to collect all these and put in a blog!! Deserves a special applause….. πŸ‘…i have a special affinity for books since childhood as i had told you already…having grown amongst them! And a dream of having my own personal library one day! Last 5 years i lost that fire in me to read anything….but slowly trying hard to re-ignite it!!!

      1. Have you read any biographies? This is the second one im reading. Only read of those whom I personally like. As in this case Musk I admire a lot!

      2. Yes biographies of Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana. Both very inspiring but both were just stated facts and had dates and pictures. I mean the one which I picked up had, but if the very same things would have been mentioned in a prose form I’d had liked that more.

      3. Biography in a prose form?! Interesting….never heard if there is one like that! I have read only one that of mahatma gandhi and now this one…

  4. LIke, loved and super loved this one, Moushmi. I have fallen head over heels in love so many times, I have seen the story unfold before my eyes, I have cried, loved, lost nights of beauty sleep and so much more for books. I agree that even though I own more books than dresses today, my responsibilities have toned down my marathon reading ability but I still manage occasionally when I escape into the confines of a bathroom to complete a certain chapter for uninterrupted reading. πŸ˜‰

      1. No, I do this too, I don’t know if I should ever be proud of it (Embarrassed now!) But sometimes I get so addicted with the books that my folks really get irritated with me, and don’t let me read peacefully which leads to such dire circumstances πŸ˜€


Your perception holds importance for me.
