Weekly Photo Challenge : Refreshing | Wordy World

I love to lose myself very often, get away from this pandemonium called LIFE! And my getaway are my BOOKS!!

What I love more than anything is getting away from my life and living the life of these abstract characters so far away from me yet so close. Sometimes its going on a wild adventurous journey through the ruins with Dan Brown, sometimes its watching Hermione freaking out about Runes. Sometimes its trying to understand the not so complex but ambiguous problems of heroines from a Jane Austen novel. Sometimes its the endearing goofiness of Bertram Wooster and sometimes its the stark reality of Shantaram. The black ink on a white paper which brings these characters to life is a miracle in itself.

These are just a few characters from the long list of citizens in my wordy world. Enjoy this picture and please do let me in on your favorite characters 🙂
