The comfort I get from books

by - 10:17 AM


Have you ever looked at your bookshelf and just smile, then suddenly feel emotional? I don't know, maybe too happy? Relieved? Comforted? It's just that whenever I see my bookshelf with my books on it, there's an automatic smile that will plaster on my face. It's like they're staring back at me and saying, "We'll stay here. We won't leave." 

 Ughhhh. It's just that today I felt so stressed because of my upcoming finals plus requirement completion. I was so antsy and grumpy the whole day, but when I went into my room and turned on the lights, I found myself staring at my bookshelf for the longest time and just tried to relish the feeling of being surrounded by books that never left my side through the years. Their mere presence was comforting, I actually felt better after staying infront of my bookshelf for a while. *sighs*

Anyway, I won't make this long, I just want to share the goodness of what books bring to my life :D

Do share your experiences and feelings! 
Have a good day ahead, everyone!

  1. THIS IS WHY I BUY BOOKS. I mean sure, I read them, but I love looking at books on a bookshelf. This is also why I love going to bookstores, and even libraries (even though the books aren't new)!

  3. Do you think it's sad that I stroke my books sometimes?
    You know that feeling when you read a books title and you're like - *sigh* "I miss you".
    Do people even get that feeling?
    I am looking at my bookshelf right now, best feeling in the world.

  4. I DO THE EXACT SAME THING. And then sometimes I just get this wave of random emotions wash over me and I think I'm crazy because I'm just sitting there looking at my shelf. Glad you shared this post with us, Abby! :)

  5. I do the same thing all the time. I actually do this thing where I'll sit in front of my bookshelves and just take out random books, read the blurb, maybe read a couple of pages and then put it back.

    I absolutely LOVE owning books, and if looking at them didn't make me happy, what would be the point of owning so many? Haha.

    I hope your exams go well, and keep looking at that bookshelf :D

  6. I definitely love to just stare at my shelves whenever I'm in that room. They are just so pretty sitting up there all together :P It's nice to look at all the covers and titles.

  7. Aww! :D When I look at my shelves, I frown at all the books I still have yet to read, haha! But I do love the feeling of having all these pretties to look at all day long! <3

  8. Great post! Yup, staring at my bookshelf makes me all kinds of happy. I went away for four days (most hellish trip!) and could not wait to get home. Walking in and seeing all my books made me feel 10x better.

  9. My bookshelves never fails to put a smile on my face! I probably have WAY to many books, but the sight of them (and the smell) is just so comforting. I could never live in a house that had no books.. that's just wrong and empty. Books fill the room! <3
    Great post!
