Books, partners #NaBloPoMo day 21

Books are the best partners in bed.

They are undemanding, unapologetic.

They are the giving lovers we crave for.

They can arouse unspeakable sensations in you.

They are inherently innocent about what they convey.

They can appease a scorched heart with their stirring words.

They aren’t great lookers always, but make the perfect inseparable companions.

  1. Haha, good one Varsha…….come to think of it quite true indeed ????????

    1. Haha, it is right? Going to bed with a good book is the best thing after a long day. Even better than company. ????

  2. Books are the best gift and are best friends too.

    1. They are indeed. That’s why I added ‘undemanding’ to those lines. ????
      Thanks for the comment Masoom. ☺

  3. Noooooooooo…… books are a good partner in bed to the extent they aid in sleep…… but yes you may be right….. for the intellectual ones going to bed along with a book is perfect start of a night….. for normal people like us it is a perfect aid to get a good sleep……

    Though I read lot of books and have a library at home….. but I prefer other times… rest all if lively life….. life goes on and on and on…….

    1. Other than course books no book has put me to sleep yet. Choice of the book matters?
      I think a book is much more than something to read. It is a feeling of belonging and sharing something that is only between the reader and the book. It is sacred and precious.

      1. But it all depends on who the writer is…. Lot of people have started writing today….. Little knowledge is very dangerous….????????

        1. Of course, that’s why I said a good book of your choice. The so-called new writers also get readers and become bestsellers, so can’t judge them really.

  4. I possibly could not have come up with a better analogy for books. Perfect partners, indeed….even better than human partners at times! 😀

    1. Well, I had thought that the ones who like to have a good share of their partners…no matter in which form they are…would connect with this analogy. ????
      Thanks for the comment Sid.

  5. How cleverly you’ve woven the sensual elements together in this piece, Varsha. For a moment, I almost thought you were not talking about books. Almost 😉

    1. Wow! Coming from you this is a huge compliment for me. I wanted to convey my deep regard for books for their sheer ‘giving’ quality which, at times, surpasses that of our real partners too. ☺
      Thank you so much for the comment Shy. ☺

  6. Haha! I cannot agree more, Varsha. 😉

    1. Haha! Thank you so much dear! ☺

  7. Oh yes..

    So which one are you reading now…

    1. I’m reading a biography on Swami Vivekananda in Hindi.

      1. Oh h.. that is goood.. he was the one who wrote divide and rule.. if I remember correctly

        1. Are you serious?? I don’t know. The book is quite detailed and I’m still on his childhood part.

          1. I think I am.
            An essay was supposed to be written on British rule.. and he wrote three words divide and rule..????

          2. That means he spoke about the way British ruled India right? It was their modus operandi.

          3. Yes …

          4. Hmmm

  8. and they make you travel the world without moving an inch 🙂 what are you reading these days ?

    1. Sure they do. Just finished The Perks of being a Wallflower. Now reading a biography of Swami Vivekananda in Hindi.
