I found those two books and I couldn’t stop laughing about it… On a side note, those are not the only types of books I read.
So if you are anything like me, as in you’re an introvert who prefers to be alone, books are your best friends. That sounds a little sad, I know, but it’s the truth. I spend more time with books than with actual people, not that I never interact with actual people every once in a while. I don’t know if you can tell from my posts or not but I love talking… about anything. I’ll go off on a tangent, just like now.
What I was saying was that I absolutely adore reading. With that said, I also love sitting at a bookstore and just getting lost in my own little world, or more specifically the world the book transfers me to. I say “bookstore” and not “café” because in the prior I have the chance to discover new literature. The fusion of the two, such as Barnes and Nobles, is my favorite and I can stay there all day.
Okay, I do not read full books there. I pick out about a dozen or so different books and read into a bit of it. If I like it, then I’ll buy it. I like to support the authors, you know? Even if I can’t find a seat, I’m just glad people still go to bookstores because I’m always scared it’ll all go completely digital.
Even though I study computer science and I’m all for technological developments, I’m not a Kindle or Nook person. I love having the actual book in my hand and perform the action of turning the pages. I feel like I’m closer to the characters and more involved in the plot if I have my face buried in the book, not literally though because I’m far-sighted and that would be a complete hassle for me.
When I was in the middle of a manic episode last year, I bought a ton of books. I just kept going and going to the bookstore even though I didn’t even finish the ones I already had. So now I’m stuck with a shelf full of books about quantum physics because I wanted to be a physicist. But I started reading them and its quite interesting. I learned about black holes, the string theory, and more importantly, our universe. I delved into the magical world of science.
So come and have some tea with me while we discuss about our lives and literature.
