This was my comment in verse on the post by Lindy Buckley almost 2 years back!


I read a book, on comets and stars,
On galaxies near and far.
Lazing on my sofa, reading on the bus,
Reading anytime anywhere, without a fuss!

I read a book, as it has many thoughts to share,
Of unknown people, who become heroes because they dare.
Sometimes, many new facts I learn,
Sometimes, brownie points I earn!

I read for pleasure, or for critical information,
I also read for appreciating the author’s imagination!
Sometimes I read two a week, sometimes four…
All that my mind says, ‘Give me more, give me more!’
