A Bookworm’s Guide to a Lazy Weekend

Books

Imagine spending a lazy weekend just doing what you love. If you are a bookworm, you would probably be thinking about all those books you want to read by now. The idea of having uninterrupted time to enjoy a good read is already a pleasant thought in itself. But why not pamper yourself and indulge in some of the simple pleasures as you laze the weekend away? Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Pick the coziest spot you can find for your weekend reading marathon. Gather all the books you plan to read. Stack them up where you can easily grab the next one on your list.

2. Make sure your kitchen is properly stocked up with all the food and snacks you will need. Prepare what you can in advance like quinoa snacks, sandwiches, and other healthy eats so you do not have to spend more time than necessary cooking a meal.

3. Hang out and do a bit of reading at the library or your favorite coffee shop or bookstore café. Or you can pack lunch or some snacks and head out to the park for some outdoor reading. Find a quiet place under the shade of a tree for a picnic read.

4. Spend time book-hunting at bookstores near you. Or use the time to explore literary points of interests in your city.

5. Unplug and do all your reading offline. Stick to the plan of doing all the bookish things you can think of. Anything else is just a distraction.…

The Most Famous Fairy Tale Characters Of All Time

Books

Fairy tales made our childhood complete. It made us feel like we belong to a whole new world.

So, it’s just right to do a countdown of the most famous Fairy tale characters of all time!

This is in no way, the opinion of the majority.

I will definitely leave some of them behind so, just share your comments below after reading so I know which ones did I missed out.

Let’s get it started!

Hansel and Gretel

Hansel Gretel
Would You Like To Have A Cookie? F* No!

Written by the Grimm Brothers, it’s one of the most iconic stories that we can possibly remember.

It shows us the weakness of the main characters and how gullible they are. The Witch, symbolizes evil and malicious thoughts. In the end, the story still went to the “Good will triumph against Evil” cliché.

Very basic plot, easy to understand. After all, it’s a children’s fairy tale book! Except the Witch knows how to make candy kabobs!

Oh, don’t forget the Hollywood remake.

Ariel ( The Little Mermaid)

This is one of the best works of the most famous storyteller of all time, Hans Christian Andersen. Disney’s version is hip and cool. But the truth is, this is a very sad story, in fact, disturbingly sad.

Try reading the book from front to cover as let’s see if you can tell whether the Disney version is related to the original. She has a bronze statue back in Andersen’s place, the wonderful country of Denmark.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Probably the most famous fairy tale character of all time, Snow White has been the epitome of the damsel in distress type of character. The movie that you’re watching on Disney is from 1937. Yeah. 1937.

Today, she’s included on the Disney Princesses. Still famous even she’s 80 years old!

 

I hope you enjoyed reading. Share you thoughts below and I’ll see you next time!
