I’ve always loved reading and with that comes a lot of bookish comforts. A few of mine that matched up with jessethereader’s are when you walk through a book store just looking at all the stories, and when book adaptions accurately capture the heart of a book. I also really relate to daydreaming about my future home library as well as reading on a rainy day. Not to mentions relating to the characters personally and really being engulfed by the story. Of course, there are many more bookish comforts that I could go on and on about.
Books always bring me comfort when I can relate to the characters or when the story itself is just happy and hopeful. One book I’ve always really enjoyed is Remembering Isaac: The Wise and Joyful Potter of Niederbipp. It is just a very comforting, peaceful, and happy story about a boy finding the meaning of life in a little town. I don’t know why I’ve always liked the book so much but when I finish reading it I’m always left happy and grateful.
Personally, the most perfect “Bookish” activity to me would be reading outside. Particularly, my favorite thing to do is go on a little hike to a pretty place on a warm summer day and just read for hours in nature. I don’t think anything can get much better than that, no distractions, a pretty view, and spending a whole day outside. It’s just absolutely perfect! Or if that’s not an option a close second is setting up a ton of blankets on my tramp and bringing snacks to have a mini picnic while I read!
