Bibliophile – dedicating this post to some people in the community i know love to read Ananya , Jessica to name a few ! the most common trait that we tend to have to name a few are

  1. We are self involved – getting bored is not our thing
  2. Nothing called perfect time, perfect weather etc – anytime is a good time to read

  4. Lost track of am / pm coz we had to finish that damn book
  5. Bestsellers are at our finger tips
  6. hoard books .. always wish there was more time and space
  7. Can get pissed when movies modify the facts
  8. Soooo hard to pick a Fav book – nothing like it
  9. Feel of paper overtakes a touch pad
  10. Bookmarks – is still a thing in our lives
