A book quote

Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.

Banned books week (Sept.25 to Oct.2)

"Held annually during the last week of September, Banned books week highlights the benefits of intellectual freedom and draws attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books across the United States, including books commonly taught in secondary schools."
------according to
The Perks of Being a WallflowerSo, what would be the best way to celebrate this week by reading some the most famous banned books? I'm currently reading 'Perks of being a wallflower ' by Stephen Chbosky.
The Catcher in the Rye
And i'll also be re-reading 'the catcher in the rye' by J.D Salinger.

The reason to read them is just not the 'reasons' because of which the books were banned but enjoy the freedom to read, to open up a little part of world that we didn't knew existed, to drown in that magical effect books have the ability to create.
So let's sit back comfortably on a favorite day of the week and enjoy intellectual freedom.:)

p.s: Did you know that Harry Potter, Twilight and the adventures of huckleberry finn were also banned! 


I mean, visiting any shop for the first time is exciting. There’s always that buzz as you push open the door; that hope; that belief - that this is going to be the shop of all shops, which will bring you everything you ever wanted, at magically low prices.

The Kite Runner

The Kite RunnerThe Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

the book has that thing which lets you get absorbed in it and also let itself absorbed by you. it has multicolored threads of human emotions of guilt, devastation, moroseness, emptiness, gratefulness weaved in its text that form the pattern amir's life. i'm glad that i read it.

wtf should i do with my life?!

that's the question many of us find banging inside our head in those moments of confusion and frustration. when life seems incomprehensible and tangled up with everyone else's that it seems impossible to distinguish one's own from this twisted network of interconnected human lives. the war of thoughts going on inside the head. at some point or the other the question arises regarding the direction life should take.
but let's sit back and get ready for some amusing ways this question can be answered by clicking this link that i tumbled across and thought it worth sharing.
