Betsy’s Sanctuary

Betsy’s Sanctuary

It’s not everyday you see a cow sitting comfortably reading a book.

In Betsy’s case, her collection of books are the ideal entertainment for when she feels like escaping from reality. With so many worlds to explore, Betsy always felt amused and excited with each page turned.

Ahh…books. Glorious, precious books.

Regardless of genre, I find books to be a source of happiness and comfort for when days become stressful or if I needed a moment of solitude.

Growing up, I’ve spent my time lounging around at my local Brooklyn Public Library. Usually after school, I would take a walk to my local library and borrow some romance and thriller literature to occupy myself once I was finished with my homework (Sweet Valley High were my guilty pleasure book series 😅).

I didn’t have a lot of friends back then, so having books near me was my own little piece of heaven. I found myself lugging more books, which was an acceptable form of baggage for me to carry rather than participate in nonsensical high school drama 🙃. At least reading books kept me out of trouble, for the most part.

As I’ve gotten older (and silently thanking technology for the creation of the Internet), I found myself hoarding even more books, this time in a digital format. Still, nothing beats like the actual physical copy of a book. The scent, touch, the presentation, etc…

I remember visiting City Lights Books during my trip to San Francisco on a whim as I’ve discovered it was not too far off from where I’ve stayed.

You can imagine my excitement where I was able to stroll around for an hour in checking out the shelves and being immersed by the plethora of books that were hanging around the walls. Highly recommend this book shop, by the way 😊

At the moment, I still have a couple of books I’m currently reading.
