Breaking The Ice

Daily Prompt: Reader’s Block

What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without reading a book (since learning how to read, of course)? Which book was it that helped break the dry spell?



I was so keen to read books 

I was a small girl with average looks

Archie’s and Marvel were among favorites 

Tintin entertained me during vacations

As a teenager got loads of homework 

Still Mills and Boons grabbed my attention

A professional course, full time Fashion designer

Love, marriage and adjusting in a new environment

Took me away from the world of books, for a moment


I came with my hubby to my  first military station

Settled our new home, first married accommodation

One fine day hubby handed over me a library card

“Go, visit, issue a book, read and write a review” he passed4e793b6ee665eeb3093c446821f89b8b

After looking  at all the sections, I carefully picked one

Erich Segal’s  ” The Class” was so engrossing and fun

Next was ” The Doctors” of the same author, a classic one

There was no stopping then till I read the whole fiction section

I had found my source of happiness.

  1. All books are fun to read, they each have a message or lesson in them. I am like you, Rashmi, love fictional books, with their dramatic plots and exciting stories. I enjoy historical books, but don’t read them often. Just when I need to become more informed. I also like true stories, but only while written well. This was a great post, well-written and so nice of your husband to get your library card and encourage you to ‘sprout wings,’ and escape from life, into the pages of a great book!

    1. Thanks and hope you had a great weekend ! My husband thrives on books.One novel I remember which had a very interesting plot was ‘The Second Lady’. I was totally lost in it.

Have you ever thought about Why slowing down is so important in life? Life is not only to run and chase the deadlines and create a million-dollar fortune. Slowing down is an art, indeed a therapy to become more mindful of your blessings of life. It means to be more present at the moment. To eliminate the stress of our lives and enjoy the simple joys that we otherwise tend to miss out on. It is a soul awakening to feel eternal happiness. This verse highlights the need of slowing down in life before it is too late.
