Daily Prompt:Â Reader’s Block
Whatâ€™s the longest youâ€™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 booksÂ
I was a small girl with average looks
Archie’s and Marvel were among favoritesÂ
Tintin entertained me during vacations
As a teenager got loads of homeworkÂ
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 Â 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 Â at all the sections, I carefully picked one
Erich Segal’s Â ” 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.

Hey….in this world of copycats…here’s to the original
Thank you .
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!
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.
