Book Spine


The other day I was in the process of keeping a book (I had just finished reading it for the first time) in the book shelf when my eyes fell on another book. There was a time when I had read it at least ten times or so. I took it out, caressed it wondering how much thrill and happiness the book gave me every time I read it in the past. The next instant I noticed the wrinkles on the book's spine. It gave the book a 'worn-out' feel. Immediately I glanced at the book I had just finished reading. Its spine looked fine. I sighed. 

The more you read a 'book', the more you risk the 'wrinkles' on its spine.

Wrinkles have a way of conveying special facts and revealing secrets. :)

Agreed Lebnox. Probably those secrets we live all our life but never share.

for me that wrinkle withholds the memories associated with that book...and it also makes me remember the relation and belonging i once developed while reading it...:)

Those wrinkles symbolise your love and affection for that and how you admire it after every single read. It's like your love for a person till death makes you apart. And after it you live it with their memories and few belongings.
