Head vs Heart


Who would win?

The head was nodding a ‘yes’, the heart was beating a rhythmic ‘no’.

The intense battle was reaching a deadlock.

The analytical mind pushed itself some more and was about to overpower the sensitive heart when a small voice said, β€˜what about the smell of old books?’

Heart 1 – Head 0.

  1. Well, if you reach a situation where me and my dad with a house full of books and not one cupboard left to store any more, then you will opt for a Kindle, irrespective of the smell of old books or not πŸ˜€

    Nice post though πŸ˜€ Loved it.

    • I know what you mean, Jairam, as even I will have to let go of this love for the smell of books soon! SIGH 😐
      Thank you, glad you enjoyed reading this post πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much, Corinne, Glad you liked the handling of this theme! πŸ™‚
      I am convinced about Kindle and will be going for it soon, coz, my home cant afford more cupboards for books! But till I get it… I’ll let the heart be happy πŸ™‚

  2. πŸ™‚ Poor e-books.. but they aren’t that bad. I don’t have a kindle or pad, but if I ever get one, I’ll let my head win..until then heart rules. On some days, when head revolts, I keep some pdfs in my PC. Kisi ko naraz kyu karna? πŸ˜€

    • That’s so very true. But there are old/new smell of books perfumes and sprays in the market for Kindle users!! Smell of Books, a revolutionary new aerosol e-book enhancer comes in four aromas: Classic Musty, Crunchy Bacon, Eau You Have Cats, and Scents of Sensibility, for Jane Austen fans. 😯 πŸ˜€

  3. I love the smell of old books too but i am the only bookworm in my family and there are no old books except mahabharatam and bhagavadgita πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯

    Naturally my budget on books looked so meager compared to the prices of each book but when my sister gifted me kindle it was something else πŸ˜€
    experience it first hand and then comeback here to see if your heart still says the same πŸ˜‰

  4. The heart will always win for me too! Cannot imagine reading books with an e-reader. What if I was reading in bed and dropped it on my face! (like I’ve done so many times with my books!) πŸ™‚ Lovely 55er!

    • Haha… I know what you mean Preeti. Here you are suddenly feeling sleepy, so with a book you can keep it aside even your eyes closed. But with a Kindle, you will have to shut it down and keep it safely and by the time it does, sleep would have long gone!! πŸ˜€ But guess, you get used to e-reader too!! Thanks Preeti πŸ™‚
