“I cannot live without books” – TJ

It’s massive, it’s unbelievable, there’s so many choices… yep! It’s the library! You have so many books to choose from, you don’t know which ones!

Who actually spends their time in the library searching for the perfect books nowadays? Or would you rather search movies on Netflix to kill time? Well, to quote it from our 3rd President, Thomas Jefferson, “I cannot live without books”, can you? It’s sad to see the newer generations moving from hardcopy to digital, from books to movies, or even worse, from paperbacks to videogames. Many opt for the visuals, for the active entertainment, that libraries have become less filled and neglected. If you haven’t walked in a library for a while, maybe take a moment to do so. Remind yourself of the smell of a stack of old books, appreciate the wonderful writings that are hidden like a gem, and spend hours searching for the right book until you are satisfied!

If you ever need a recommendation, here is one of my favorite books. It is listed in the Young Adults section, but there is no doubt my mother enjoyed the book too. It definitely brings another perspective to life –


& lastly, if you ever were or will become a bookworm, visiting the Library of Congress is a MUST! Be one of the readers or researchers in the room above and indulge yourself in the stories that you’ve come to be part of.

  1. I love reading books. I can’t imagine not having a world without books. I agree that it is sad that as generations pass things are becoming more digitized. I’ve read digital books but I would rather have a physical copy in my hand. I love the feeling and smell of a paperback book, especially books that are used. I think having a hardcopy of a book makes the story feel more personal and more alive.

    1. Yes, I absolutely agree with you! I can’t withstand going into bookstores and not buying a physical book, the digital copies just doesn’t give me the same feeling! Now that everything is digitized, it just feels like less people appreciate the hardcopies! I’m glad you do šŸ™‚
