I love books. I am obsessed with reading. I hope that until my last breath, I am busy trying to finish at least three books.
Yes – I read at least three at a time. Gives me such a wonderful high. Nothing feels greater than getting hold of a book I’ve wanted to read for a long time or being recommended a fabulous book by a friend I trust. I consider myself lucky to have cultivated the habit of reading at a young age. Also fortunate that during my childhood, books were my main source of entertainment.
We had a vast library at home with books of different genres. My Grandma was an avid reader and I don’t ever remember her taking a nap in the afternoons even when she was 80! Instead, she’d sit up straight on her tall stool and read from the fine print of her epic “Bhagavata Purana” Oh, she loved fiction, too. My Mom and I have bribed each other often with who gets to read a book first – with the bribe being tackling housework.
The things I’d do for a book! I have fond memories of hiding a novel inside my text books and also reading under the blanket with the torch on and feeling very clever, little knowing that my Mom and Grandma had a good laugh at the glow from my bed and ignored it so I’d have my happy thrills.
Today I enjoy the privilege of being contacted by authors directly to review their books and to help them edit their manuscripts.
I am in book heaven, I say! And it is such a great place to be!
