The Habit of Reading !

Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.

Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations - such is a pleasure beyond compare.

You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be -
I had a mother who read to me.

Such is the passion i have towards reading... I generally read all kinda books, right from Tinkle - Osho, Management books - M&B, Sri Sri Ravishankar - Norman Vincent Peale, Kadalai madicha paper - Kadhal Paper :)

Give me books, lock me alone in a room, Little food and water.. I can survive ! Yes, it is not a joke.. I would try to post some book reviews in the forthcoming days.
