Everyday Inspiration: Living with Books and Bookmarks

I was never a book person, until I read that very first book in my life- that totally changed my love for reading! I got lost in its pages; and went delving deep into it. The message beneath those words were not just inspiring, but so authentic that I could not put it down! Reading turned into a beautiful habit. I love devouring non- fictional books; that inspires me, helps me to create "beautiful days" in my life, and makes me a careless wanderer. 

I have always loved scrolling through blogs and pictures that showed books, favorite picks of the month, personal reading lists, libraries, personal reading spaces; etc. I would always save and bookmark such posts, and revisit them to feel inspired and motivated. 

My love for books have has increased in past few years; and the attraction is continuously growing with each passing day. "Books can take away your sorrows and pain. They can be your best source of information and inspiration." All you need to do is- include them in your life- (only) if you want to!

Don't just read because, you want to show others; but read, because reading gives you that inner peace and happiness. You feel good with books, and love its company. Read, because reading matters in your life!"

Ever since I started loving books; I realized, "a book is actually one of the best things in the world. A true friend and the best companion." Reading gives me my sanity, and the power to be myself. 

I wanted to share with you my tiny library, and the beautiful accessories for my books- book markers. I am so obsessed with collecting book markers; that I can never have enough of them... They are my treasures. Every time I start feeling low or unhappy; I try to bury myself in the books of my favorite authors- stay there until I feel myself again. My love for books in the recent years have blossomed into a deep appreciation for the love of literature; that has the power to connect us with people, places, and our own self; a strong connection that can improve our lives and develop good relationships!

I love reading hardcover books. They make such an authentic "true" companion. No technology can replace the satisfaction we earn after reading hardcovers'. I love to escape in a good book. It usually helps me to take my mind off of what's happening in my life. I totally enjoy that carelessness of my mind- for that moment. Books do impact our lives! I love to lose myself in good books- that leaves behind fresh feelings and many calmed thoughts and emotions.

I wish to have my own library someday; that will include my favorites reads, and authors; and also to collect all-types of bookmarks available:)

Reading is such a beautiful and easy exercise for our body, mind and soul! So continue reading more and more.......

At present I am reading this book.
