During the cold winter nights there is nothing better than a cozy evening at home spend on the couch with a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Who can resist that? But what made the night even more perfect? Some would say someone to cuddle up to, but there’s something far more satisfying than that: The joys of a good book.

Whether it’s a fantastic adventure or a love drama,nothing helps escape the winter blues like a good old-fashioned page turner. And if you think that the joy of winter evenings at home starts and ends with a boyfriend, think again! From lasting all night to smelling good in the morning here are 20 reasons why books are better than boyfriends according to metro.co.uk website. So what would you add?

#1.  You can drop them and pick them up again when you want to … 

And you won’t be the bad guy if you decide to ditch them halfway through.

#2. They don’t mind you discussing them with all your mates over dinner

And if you’re reading more than one at a time you don’t need to keep it a secret.

#3. Every one is totally different

And will always take you on an adventure.

#4. You can keep them to make your house look pretty even after you’ve finished with them


#5. Big ones aren’t always the best ones

And hard ones aren’t always better than soft backs.

#6. Books can last all night

And then some.

#7. You can skip to the good parts

Can’t do that with boyfriends.

#8. You can pass a good book around your friends

#9. A good book will satisfy you in the bedroom, the kitchen, on the sofa, in the bath


#10. Books still smell good in the morning

Take a good sniff.


#11. They’re very into PDA

And you can get intimate with a book in a pub in the middle of the day without getting thrown out for indecency.

#12. Even the old ones still know how to perform

#13. You can pick a book off the shelf without having to fill in a profile

Or spend two weeks of your life you’re never going to get back WhatsApp-ing about your hobbies with a total stranger.

#14. They look better the older they get

Hello creased spines and dog ears.

#15. They’ll take you to Paris on a Monday night, Morocco on a Thursday and Hogwarts on a Saturday

Go all over the world.


#16. You don’t have to remove all your body hair for a date with a book

#17. Or make small talk after a late night session when all you really want to do is go to sleep

No pillow talk, just quiet.

#18. You don’t get pissed off when you see someone else reading your book on the tube

Hello, fellow person with excellent taste.

#19. People don’t think you’re flighty if you don’t stick to the same ‘type’

No defending your preference for Victorian ghost stories.

#20. They’ll stimulate you whenever you want

Mind, body and soul.
