Let's Be A Character

Assalamualaikum people.

'A room without books is like a body without a soul.' - Cicero

Reading. One of my favourite since I was kid. My mom helps me a lot in explaining this and that. Helps me to read, to learn new words. And my dad, of course did help me. He buys all the book. I mean, money comes from him, is it? ;)

I love a book with thriller genre, motivation, science-fiction, biography or maybe based-on-true-story.  I rarely read lovey-dovey novels because it just fantasy. After all, where it will lead us to? Fake happiness? Sorry, it such a waste journey. Some people treat books as their escape from reality, from problems. Be a character. Be in author's mind who will lead us to the end of journey. 

'Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination and the journey. They are home.' - Anne Quindlen

Back then when I was working at Parkson, every month I will spend some money for Indie books. I love their writing. I don't spend much for English novels because they're so expensive. I once buy lots of English novel with my books voucher. Totally worth it. Sometimes I just read it online. But now, Android got apps for book-readers out there. Amazing isn't it?! I just pick what books I want and read them everywhere. But of course the most important thing, I have find network connection first before my happiness grows.

These are my collection but it just half of it. I haven't finish reading them yet so I brought to Segamat. I love to read the author's blog too. You see the book with 'Awek Chuck Taylor' tittle on it? I know the author. The one with schizophrenia illness. He is such a great guy. His brain full with history and fact. He remember every story, date, places and names so well. I loves to read his tweets and blogs because I can learn so much. His books of course have lot of facts and facts and facts. He such a great inspiration. I also follow Twitter twt_buku. Always come up with an amazing curator every week and suggestion for great book. For a book lover, it is a must to have them in your following list.

Till then, enjoy your reading and have a nice day.
