We all know that life is a learning process. In our lifetimes, we explore multiple facets of life through various experiences. One way of uncovering the mysteries and wonders of life is reading.
A book is a great reserve of amazing information. You can sit in a cozy recliner with a cuppa coffee, read all day, and travel the world at the same time. Books open a window to the unknown; we learn about places we have never seen, or never imagined they existed; we learn about people, and how good, bad, mysterious, wonderful, unique, and eccentric they can be; we learn about different situations, and their complexities.
Out of all these interesting books, there are a few you absolutely fall in love with. These are the books you bond with easily, because they tell stories you connect with in an instant. You feel like revisiting a story and its characters again and again, and every time you read the book, you discover a new dimension to it. You are purged with all kinds of emotions that appeal to you. You are so intrigued with the plot and characters that even after the book has ended, you feel like there was something more to it that you missed. Only a great book can result into an impact of that magnitude.
I believe there is one such book for everyone. One book that we want to know more about. It appeals to us so deeply, that we feel a special kinship with it.
I guess I have found that book.
The book I am reading is like some of the good books in the world – difficult to decipher, yet have a sublime effect on the reader. But it is only after a rigorous study that we can decipher these books.
A rigorous study demands patience. And after all the efforts of having tried, I feel my interest in it is losing steam. Maybe because my book is going through a phase I am not able to relate to. How could it be my book then? And if it’s not, then why am I still reading it?
Or, perhaps I give up too soon.
Either ways, if there’s anything that needs to be changed, then it’s my attitude.
