Booking Through Ideal

I want you to think about your ideal reading experience. Think about the location. (Your bed? Favorite chair? The beach? Indoors or outdoors?). Think about the sounds. (Is there music playing? Happy children playing in the background? Utter silence?) Is there a snack or beverage nearby? Are you alone or with friends/family (presumably being quiet enough for you to read in peace)? What kind of lighting is there? Are you dressed in something ultra-comfy? What’s your position? Curled up? Stretched out?

Now … describe it so that we can all feel exactly how perfect it is … and why.

a book in my hands
love the smell, old or new
curled in a couch

I read it

even stretched out at times
with one hand hanging to the floor
I get lost into a world far away

I read it

travelling in the metro
standing or sitting
to the sound of chugging

I read it

in front of the television
in my arm chair I recline
with juice or tea

I read it

in formals or lounge wear
with a cushion on my back
I sit straight with a book on my lap

I read it

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, I thought why not express it poetically?!!
