In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

What an interesting novel does



The story so interesting
Your mind often on it
It takes you in it's world
And moves you
Angers you
Excites you
Saddens you
Charms you
And delights you
That is the power
Of a good novel

Glad you have an outlet. Novels have lost their charm for me. The good part is that I rarely miss it.

lvnsm27 - have any good recommendations?
i think i've read every classic book on the planet a number of times, and i'm bored of reading the dumb novels of today.

I know what you mean, I read before a lot of interesting ones, but then didn't know what else to pick from the library. Then I found something that was really interesting.

I used to enjoy a good novel as a relaxing escape from the real life events but lately i lost the patience for it

Nice writing.

if I may include "it captures you" which is why my problem is that once I start a good book I can never put it down until I finish (even if it means staying up all night.)

Lvnsm27 said...

CS This book I read recently kept me up until 3am the whole week
