Happy – You Know a Book Can Do it For You

 

Happiness really can be found inside a book. The secret is to find the book that touches your heart. It is an intimate and personal thing to find a book that truly makes you happy. The right book can make your heart sing.

Find a book that makes you happy – it doesn’t have to be “good” for you.

Many people don’t read or are not happy with books because they have not found books that speak to their hearts. If you want to get into reading and books, start with the last book you remember liking. It doesn’t matter if it is a Dr. Seuss book from your childhood. It doesn’t matter if it is volume seven of the United States Tax Code. Get a copy of the last book you remember liking and read it again. On my bookshelves and my e-readers I have copies of books I have enjoyed at various stages throughout my life. On my desk shelf, at eye level, I have a copy of selected poems by Langston Hughes that is almost 20 years old, falling apart, has pages bent and is being held together with a rubber band. That book is a treasure and not a month goes by that I don’t flip through and read it even though I know almost the entire book of poems by heart.

 

 

In order to find a book that makes you happy, pick a book about a topic you like. No matter what it is you like, there is a book about it. If you want to read, simply to for the joy of reading, don’t worry about what others are reading. Instead, read what you like. There is nothing wrong with reading only what you like. For example, when it comes to movies, I like a happy ending. I cannot stand a movie without a happy ending. However, I will never read a romance story and it doesn’t bother me if a book ends on a sad note.

  • I agree with Meagan, I always choose a book that brings me joy. I love reading mysteries and sometimes romantic books.

  • I have not had or should I say made time for a book besides the Bible in a while. I need to really get myself reading again to relax.

  • I try to choose a variety of books. I like to switch it up. Maybe a mystery today, a thriller tomorrow...

  • i have always love reading. since i started to blog i dont get to as much but it is such a fav past time of mine.

  • When it comes to books I ALWAYS read the last page first. Some think it would ruin the book- but it actually compels me to read!

  • I always love reading but never have any time for it. I have piles of books that I say I'm going to finally read!

  • I love to read and make time for it daily....even if it's just a few pages a day.

  • I have always had a love for reading. It is a great way to escape into a new world.
