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 passed

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.
