“I have never known any distress that an hour's reading did not relieve.”

Reading Novels had never been an Important thing in my life ..before last year..
I was basically a once in a blue moon reader ..
I use to read only when all the other options were closed for me..!
May be because I never considered my interest on choosing a book! Infact..I use to read those books which were roaming in my house...probably others choice!
so particularly I never tried reading my own choice...therefore I lacked interest in them...But since last year holidays were turning out to be kinda boring for me..therefore I decided to purchase some of them.. purely of my own interest.. But, even then I was sure about the fact that I’ll finish them in a year or so..B’coz a really non regular reader I was.. But well..things dint turned out to be the way I thought..I bought home Sophies World ..(and others along with it..but I started from this one).
It is a book which generates in you, all kind of philosophical thoughts...I still remember the first lesson of my life.. which I learned on my own.. was through this book...n that was ..

Happiness Doesn’t rests in materialistic things..[Infact its not a thing]
Its not in living in a luxurious house with servants all around u ...But it is, in feeling at ease , even in a non luxurious house ..
It is not happiness when u speak in a cheerful tone , sitting in an air-conditioned space...In fact the true happiness is cheering and feeling at peace ,without even a fan .. Taking whatever nature offers is happiness....because this is the only bliss which no one can snatch it from you.. Not even bad days.. Not even worse circumstances!Initially I used to consider these wise thoughts as
'Kitabi Batain'…but then I realized that truth surely inhabits in them!

Well then…after reading this book…I started ‘Reading’ like it was my childhood passion.. lol..and believe me.. It helps me in so many ways…Sometimes a trouble skips my mind while reading and sometimes trouble makers ;) And what I’ve observed so far is that..

Not only Time…but Reading is also a great big healer!

Hey I agree completely!
Have been an avid reader and always feel that I am losing out on something when I am not reading!
I have a huge collection of books in my house coz I love to collect books as well!
