“You’re never alone when you’re reading a book.”― Susan Wiggs
How perfect 🙂 A reader always have a company either of people or of pages 🙂 The latter is understood but the former would be brow raising query.
Today to elaborate the former I will unleash a memory of book reading journey 🙂
On a foggy freezing Delhi winter, I was standing near the metro door holding “The Oath of Vayputras”.
A lot of people are capable, Neelkanth. What makes a capable person truly dangerous is his conviction. I smiled wickedly as if a hidden sutra was unfolded to me.
I looked up, glancing sidewards at the moving Yamuna. I heaved and let out a sigh.
Excuse me! I turned to look, there was a beautiful round smiling face of a girl. I smiled back.
She(pointing towards the book ): Is this the latest one from AMISH TRIPATHI?
I(smiling) : Yap ! Have you read this already?
She(laughing): I think it’s out of stock right now 😛
I(laughing back): Yeah, I pre-booked this one before launch 😉
She(inquisitively): So how is it turning out?
I(smirking): Good so far.
She(tilting her head): So do you read often.
I(grinning): Yeah, can’t live without them.
She(ha ha) : Me too.
So our conversation took off with books discussing the upcoming Indian authors to established ones. From the romantic genre to biographies. Discussing fiction to philosophy.Our two hours vanished in blink of an eye. We parted with huge smiles on our faces.
It was one of my most remarkable metro journey. And I call it friendship over books.
So friends share your friendship over books story.
This my attempt for the Second day of the A-Z Challenge.
