ABC Wednesday/Magpie Tales-I Love Books



I love books,
I truly do,
Books of passions
and stories that glow,
Books of expressions
and people we must know.
.
A book is a tale of castles and kings,
A book is an escape of upset things,
Find a spot where you can hide,
Let a book take you for a mental ride.
.
Words breathe life from start to end,
A good book is a good friend.
Words can blow clouds away,
Words can create dramas to satisfy your fantasy.
.
I love books,
I truly do.
Books of pictures
and places, too.
Books of adventures
and facts that are true.



ABC Wednesday, R is for reading

Nice Jingle and I agree with you that books are an escape. I just finished reading a book earlier this week and it was a smooth one to get through. It was more non-fiction and business based but useful and enjoyable nonetheless, lol.
