The unique beauty of books

  • Print
Ramisa Maliha Bhuiyan :
Books give life and soul to a house. A home without books pictures a fearful world of ignorance. Books teach you, refresh you, entertain you, energize you, and that's not where it ends. Your choice of books creates a picture of you to others, reflects your judgments, represents your culture and defines your personality. You experience a unique feeling the entire time you spend with books. The colours, the sweet - smelling pages...there's a pleasant, unique feeling to hold them. Books fit anywhere, and enlighten everywhere they go.
Books have a special feeling to hold. Moreover books are mind of house. A house without book is cold, soulless! A life without books is feared by book lovers. Does not it give you a pleasure to be beside book library - anyway, everyone has it, more or less, even less bookish ones? Books are essential for everyone. They have a decorative and cultural effect. Books can fit anywhere in house, blocking out sound and acting as social status and information resource. Undoubtedly, books are works of arts -- more attractive than any other medium. CD - ROM can't stand beside it even. No doubt, it creates an impression on others too! I strongly support the evergreen love for books. They are beautiful form of art which decorates your home, and the small empire of books overrides the domination of sounds. I think it is now crystal clear for everyone that the unique beauty of books is irreplaceable which is almost as same as a universal truth.
