Sometimes, we all need a break from these little glowing boxes. How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?
Reading makes me happy
George Martin has said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.”
When you read, you know that feeling. When you are reading a book you go on a roller coaster ride. You can feel it in your stomach, you can feel the wind caressing your face slowly and then boom, it will hit you hard in your face and it will make you laugh and suddenly you will cry also. You will feel the characters living and breathing around you. You will feel every turning page like you’re living in it.
Many a time it happens that you don’t find the exact words to express yourself but you will find the words in books.
When I read I feel less alone, I like to be alone but I don’t like to feel lonely. Books are the only company I can have when I need a break from little glowing boxes.
You don’t just read a book, you travel in it. You go on a trip with characters, you imagine the places in your mind, you try to talk with them. You go on a trip where you don’t know who the driver is but you just go on and on, and it refers to what happens when your vehicle got punctured between an empty road in the middle of nowhere and the driver can’t tell which way is right.
You can feel the exhilaration inside you but can’t express.
