Just few weeks ago, I promised myself that I will fix a day fortnightly to visit the library for books. As much as I love the ambiance and range of books in the bookstore, and not forgetting the freshness of a new book, library is still the economical choice for me. There are times when I visited the library too regularly, that I find the books really boring as I have been somewhat seeing the same titles again and again. Anyway, the plan was aborted almost immediately when my schedules are overwhelmed by all the project meetings and tests. I stopped reading.. for a few weeks.
Just last week, after one of my tiring project meeting, I am not sure what got into me. I simply needed some time off, so my legs were bringing me around, and into the library. The world of books attracted me so much that I went ahead, judging the books by their covers. Then again, I am stuck to reading.
Random: I have always been reading non-fiction. Fiction does not seemed to attract me in any way and I can’t seem to finish up a fiction book no matter how hard I tried. I would get bored with the story and eventually, abandoned the book. Still, I do make some effort to introduce fiction books into my life. Little successes thus far.. BUT I did finished up some good fiction books.
Currently, Jodi Picoult’s books seemed interesting to me. I have bought her ‘House Rules’, waiting to be read soon. Actually, I have too many ‘to-be-read-soon’ books in hand now.
I find peace and myself in reading and the world of books. It is a world where words are everything, they have the power to display love, hatred, emotions and lives. I am not going to abandon books like how I did few years ago.
A way for me to recharge, relax and rediscover the world.
A way for me to understand, learn and grow.
