It would be a lie to say that the world of books is not another heaven. Books take us to a world of bliss, where everything is as good or as bad as we imagine it to be.
Books make our imagination run wild. Books allow us to explore the depths of our mind and come up with the most amazing scenarios that our minds can make up.
The loyalty of books is unquestionable and they don’t lie to us. They are like mirrors. They don’t hide anything. They are with us when we need them. They are not deceptive. They are a medicine to our loneliness and a teacher to our gullible minds. They make us happy when all we want to is cry in a corner curled up in a ball. They can make us laugh. They can make us cry as well.
But not all books give us just good. Just like we choose our friends wisely, we need to choose what to read wisely. They can have a great influence on our minds. If we fall in the company of bad people, we adopt bad habits. Same is the case for books. If we read books that are not for us, they can teach us things that we don’t need to learn, that are not for us.
Harry Potter fans wouldn’t have Daniel Radcliffe as their Harry Potter then. Harry Potter could be Tom Cruise or anyone for that matter. The movie series gave us our Potter otherwise, every fan would have a different Potter. While reading the book series, we could actually imagine what it would be like to have a person without a nose, as much weird as it sounds. We could run our minds to extreme ends and imagine a broom actually flying. There were no restrictions on the extent till we could expect things to be because there is no bar set. We could expect anything and everything then.
They teach us so many things. On one hand, they expand our minds’ horizons, while on the other, they give a reality check when we need it. They can change our perspectives and guide us to think in the right direction.
Want to travel somewhere but don’t have the means to do it? Read a book and it instantly takes us wherever we want to be in an instant.
Choose books that can make you feel good and positive in life, that can teach you to appreciate life and whatever you have, that make you value and love yourself, more than loving or valuing anyone else.
Make books your best friends and you will never be bored!
