Get Lost In A Good Book


Do you often pull out a new book?

Does the anticipation of a new story draw you in?

Do you enjoy getting lost in the magic of the words?

When was the last time you opened one to begin?


In a healing crisis when you are laid up at home,

You might have extra time on your hands,

Why not open up a new book to read?

And be distracted on the pages at hand.


Are you a reader who prefers non-truth fiction?

Reading romance, or fantasy or mysteries?

Or do you prefer books that are true and non-fiction?

Like how-to’s, travel tales or biographies?


Do you like the tactile feel of a book in your hands?

Or do you now read by a digital device?

Or how about listening to a good audio-book?

Listening hands-free while reclining is nice.


If you have to take a period of down-time,

While you patiently wait to mend,

Why not get a good book to read?

It’s another way to distract from the situation at hand.


A good book is a wonderful solution,

As a good story will whisk you away,

Help you feel better by spending enjoyable time,

As you rest to improve your health each day.
