Reading After a Long Hiatus July 11, 2007Posted by WishBoNe in Books, Family, Just For Fun, Random Thoughts, Relationships.
I have taken up reading again. Novels, short stories, mostly fiction. No, I didn’t visit the library. It has gotten worst. The kindergarten kids will scream, run, play and lord knows what as long as they can produce the loudest noise possible. Some parents will shout at them to quiet down. They do, for a minute and the ruckus starts again.
Now, where was I? Oh yeah. I rented a book from Sans Bookshop. It’s one of my favourite place because of the range of books available. The books are usually in good condition. The ones in the libray depends on luck. The cover are torn or one of the pages would be missing and the story just gets disrupted. I used to devour 8 books per week until my schedule got packed.
I missed reading. Although, this book was interesting at first, I got disrupted by the first and third person narration. The flow was there but the narration caught me off track a few times. Been quite some time since I did a book review. I used to do a book review in primary school because it was part of the homework. Everyone would get a few pieces of the paper with various designs and use any to submit the completed review. I had fun with all those designs. I had even more fun reading.
Nancy Drew was my first book. It got me hooked on detective series for a while. I went on to read The Hardy Boys, Famous Five, Enid Blyton series and many others. Looks like I shall have to manage my time better.
