Beauty and the beast was (still is) one of my favourite animated movies of all time.
The musical score, the timeless love tale of a beautiful yet independent and inquisitive girl and a shamed, ferocious beast, that yellow ball gown and
oh! The huge hall filled with books from the top ceiling to the last bookshelf.
THANK YOU DISNEY FOR MAKING MY CHILDHOOD.
Watching that “cartoon” made me fall in love with books. Belle was probably the only one in that town who regularly visited the library. And as she read, she thought to herself, “there had to be more for me than this provincial live”
Oh! And the thought of being in a huge cathedral but filled with books from head to toe is one of the most beautiful feeling ever.
Books are life savers because they dive you to worlds filled with possibilities you never thought existed.
This to me is magic!
Only if there were some places such as this in my town. It doesn’t have to be a cathedral. It could be just a store/ cafe where I could bury my head in books upon books.
Till then, a girl can dream.
