“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.” 

― Anna Quindlen

Wordless Wednesday 87 

A moment in the life of a ten-year-old who devoured books any time, anywhere. This is from four years ago when the Mac was yet to unleash its’ charm on him and he read as one possessed! He still does, but now splits his time between his other interests viz, Music, Chess and Quizzing. As a book-loving family with three generations of readers who get hooked onto books rather easily, a major part of our time at home is spent discussing what we read and then, sharing it with the rest.

Our current library at home is constantly growing and now, as we see it, the only way forward is to move to a bigger place where we can have more room to accommodate them. But, the question is, no space is infinite, so I guess we need to stop buying books at some point, or maybe donate some of our old ones to make room for the new, or get the Kindle out and start using it. We seem to be so enamoured of the smell of paper and the feel of an actual book, that we’ve been putting off using the Kindle at all! Tell me, how does one get used to it? Any suggestions??

    He looks so engrossed in the book. Makes me feel good to see a little kid reading. He has developed an excellent habit. I still prefer paperbacks. But have a collection of ebooks too, for times when I can’t take out my book.
    Looks like you are going to need a lot of space for books in the future 😊 both physical and digital.

    It feels so nice to read about Mr. A, his love for reading and bookish stuff in general. I hope he is doing much better. My aspirations for D, when it comes to reading, is he be like Mr. A but alas D has more non-readers in his blood than readers (who is just me). This also means that I can never cease to be intimately involved with him and his reading.

    Great pic. This GEO magazine isn’t published any more I think. I have several copies of them.
    Happy WW!

    One of my absolute FAVORITE things to see is a child reading a book.
    So few do these days in this age of electronics.

    Mine are readers too.

    Thanks for sharing!

    That’s a beautiful click, Esha! I love both paperbacks and reading on my kindle app. One cannot keep accumulating books because of the space constriction, so I buy a few, then get some on my kindle app, and the rest our public library lends. ❤️

    What a beautiful one.
    I read on kindle on the time and space is the biggest challenge for me. I live in a small one bedroom apartment and I can’t add books. So, necessity has driven me to read on kindle. And I think I did not make myself miss the paperbacks. 🙂

    I still love paperback books and like you said the smell of the paper. I just love the smell and a book in my hand rather than the Kindle. I have not been able to convince my self to use a Kindle.

    We have the Kindle, but to be honest, I prefer my paperbacks. Yes, I have read on the Kindle for the sheer convenience of it, but I realised over a period of time I was slightly biased towards the whiff of paper, the rustling of pages, and the innumerable post-it markers that I can use on my books.

    That’s a lovely shot of Arjyo. Infact I was going to post one of Aarshia reading too. 🙂
