Alphabet Crazy Challenge: B for Books

As far as I can remember, books are my first love. I love to read them as well as collecting them. I also love the smell of it. For me, the smell of a book is so relaxing.

I always love to read since I was 4 years old, but I start to love collecting the book after my uncle bring me to the bookstore for the first time when I was in elementary school. The first time I enter the bookstore, I just feel like I am home. Looking at the books arranged on the bookshelves just give me some kind of satisfaction.

That time, my uncle asked me to pick one book to buy and I choose a comic book called Doraemon. It’s a famous story from Japan about a cat robot from the future who helps an elementary student who struggles with his study.

After own my first book, I feel different experiences with reading. Before, when I want to read something I usually borrow it from my school library. But I never like to read a book from the library. The main reason because my school library is quite small and their collection is not up to date as well. So, I don’t have lots of options to read. Besides that, I always want to own the books that I read so I can re-read it every time I want.

Since then, not only love reading I also love to collect books. I always save my pocket money so I can purchase books every month. Now, my dream is to own a personal library to display all of my book collections.

  1. I love reading and I own a huge cabinet of books, Last year I gave away all the children’s books to an orphanage because my boys are almost adults now.

    • Thanks for stopping by and it’s nice to know another reader. Will look for the book you mentioned above on Goodreads, maybe it’s something that I’m interested to read next.

  2. It’s wonderful that you love books since you were little! I started being an avid reader in my teens, but I didn’t enjoy reading when I was a child.
