H: Haven
A good book is a haven from the world. Whether it's to explore or to escape, reading a book is like being in heaven. 


  • noun - the abode of God and the angels

  • noun - any place of complete bliss and delight and peace

  • Haven:

  • noun:   a shelter serving as a place of safety or sanctuary

  • noun:   a sheltered port where ships handle cargo

  • Sanctuary:
  • noun:   a consecrated place where sacred objects are kept

  • noun:   a shelter from danger or hardship

  • See the similarities? I never really thought of a book as a shelter before, but I guess they can shelter us from our own insecurities, or even open ourselves up to them. What a quandary!

    What do you think? How do you view books? A haven or something else?


    1. Books have often been my haven! I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge blogs this month.

    2. Definitely a haven, also a fund, an adventure, an escape, a rest, a way to enthuse... oh, the list is endless, as are books!

      I'm also a children's writer - if you are interested, I'm leaving you my A-Z link as blogger

    3. books are a writer's haven for sure:)

      Great A-Z post!

    4. Books do offer a bit of bliss and some escape from the norm.

    5. Books are most definitely a haven - and and escape

    6. Christie,
      To me, the only book that is a true haven is the Bible. All other books are merely an escape or break from life.

      Neat question.
