Hmm, I sigh
feeling this yearning
to breathe in
these fresh crisp
fulness of poetic prose
dancing before me
my fingers up
your spine feeling the
pulls me in
each mesmerising word, as

Books have the power to mesmerise and draw me in.
Very nice, Celestine.
I can relate. I always feel the excitement of browsing and exploring the bookstores and finding just the perfect ‘read’. I prefer the print books over e-books any day.
Joyce, there is nothing so exciting like holding a fresh print book in your hands. 🙂
I definitely agree, Celestine. And of course the old stories, classics, etc. still in print after all these year, many of them my favorites, even Dr. Seuss, my favorite in children’s books. 🙂 I just posted The Book Mobile a few minutes ago about my reading experiences as a child so very very long ago. ‘Check’ it out. A play on words. 🙂
Sure, will do so now! 🙂

You even make books sound sexy. I’m in awe. 😉
🙂 Alice, that was the whole intention. Otherwise wherein would lie the attraction? 🙂 Thanks 🙂
Alice Keys said:
Next thing, you’ll be making groundnut soup sound sexy. 😉
I just might you know. And I do love groundnut soup even though it’s not good for me. (acid reflux) 🙂
Alice Keys said:
Oh no!. Acid reflux. I love peanut butter and peanut sauce. I haven’t made soup yet though. Do you have a favorite recipe?
I guess I might write down the method for you but there isn’t any special recipe for groundnut soup over here. More from observing what our mothers do. I guess that is a recipe of sorts! 🙂
Makes me wanna’ pick up a book & read! 😉
Glad to hea that Rosy. Do so now if you’re not too busy!
A great write … you’ve transmitted beautifully that special sensation of book shopping! The forms are perfectly executed too … smooth!
Thanks ever so much for your encouraging words. 🙂
You’re very welcome indeed! 🙂

When you find yourself surrounded with all the books of a lifetime.
I mean, everywhere you look, there is a best seller that has been on your wish list.
I will remember these words the next time I go book hunting. 🙂
Nice one, Celestine.
Thanks you so much Lyrical Treasure. 🙂 In a bookshop I never want to leave. As if I should sleep amongst the books forever.

That exciting moment, what will I find today? 🙂
You know it 🙂
I love when you do that. Lure us in with words and twist the meaning at the end.
Laughing at your words, Kim. Is that what I do? You know me so well then. 🙂 Hubby says I always twist words and he says that only when he can’t win an argument with me!
