My Favourite Books / Type of Books :: Sample Entry to "My Thursday Favourite" contest

in #actifit2 years ago (edited)


Ah books, wonderful books... they open doors to all kinds of adventure and they bring us to different worlds, different lives, giving us knowledge of all sorts.


When it comes to books, I still prefer the good ol' paper book compared to digital or audio books. There is a certain joy that sweeps me when I flip the pages, one by one, or just as simple as holding a book, compared to reading something electronically through a portable device such as mobile phone or kindle or a tablet.


When I go to a book store, the first section I usually look for, is the hobbies, arts and crafts section. I love looking at books with lots of actual photos that teaches you how to make things such as paper cards, origami, drawing, quilling, sewing, crocheting, knitting, quilting, gardening, baking and I am very drawn to happy fonts and colours. Then, if it feels right, I would buy them to keep (yes, you read it right..to keep) and read them occasionally 😁. And it is quite a variety 😄 .

Just a quick close-up on some of the quilting and sewing books that I have bought over the past 10 years or so, not that I have made any or many but I love to be inspired by beautiful designs.

There are also some books on gardening, cooking and baking, which are all part of my wishful thinking that one day I will have a lovely garden, and be able to cook and bake just like my grandma ✯.

I especially love books that has lots of step-by-step close-up photos like this one, easy to follow and oh so inviting (they are always whispering, "come, join me to make this...")...

Back to the book store...after going through the hobbies, arts and crafts section, I would usually trot over to the chick literature section. These are my other happy books. Books that brings you to a world that is possible, that has happy journeys and happy endings. Don't you feel happy just by reading the titles?

Happy books bring happy thoughts that make a happy heart to heal the sadness in the world today, for there are just too many sadness out there. A good wishful thinking that brings hope to a happy life 😊.

I love seeing the colours and the prints and all happy things. I have tried reading serious novels many times and most times, I would end up feeling depressed. That is why, most of the books in my library are happy books. Books that, as I read them, make my heart go aaww, oooh and aaah... 😍.

I am just the same as you.

There are things that digital books will never replace - the feeling of one-ness when one holds a book, read it, touch it, smell the pages (especially new books), listen to the sounds of turning the pages and the imagination that come from reading it.

This makes lasting memories.

Oo yes. The smell of a new book is nicee and the sounds of turning the pages. Aaahhh.

my wishful thinking that one day I will have a lovely garden, and be able to cook and bake just like my grandma ✯

It's good to dream, and dream big! Make your wishes your dreams - what's the difference? The strength of your belief that they will come to pass AND how real you make your dreams a visible part of your daily life.

Yes, dreams do come true if you dare to make it real in multi-colored and multi-dimensional ways in all your days.

Yup yup. I believe I can achieve it partly hehe. I have a small garden that has plants that thrive and plants that die. And my cooking and baking are sometimes successful and sometimes not 😅 It is a learning everyday.

I am just the opposite. I think those happy books are mostly unrealistic and are fantasies.

I like to read books that are based on realistic context and history. I believe that a happy or happier life is one that I learn, from reading such books, to learn the hard lessons based on someone else's misfortune and mistakes, and not mine by avoiding them.

Ah that is true too. But it doesn’t hurt to fantasize a little :)
