This year, I'm getting back to my first love. And that is book reading!
I miss the days when I would literally, well almost literally, bury my nose in a book. I would be one of those people who walks slow in a busy street because I was reading a book. I spent lunches reading instead of eating.
|Reading a book is my therapy :)|
I wanted to start the year by re-reading my favourite book, Unbearable Lightness of Being, by my favorite writer, Milan Kundera. But I couldn't find where my sister has kept it.
|The caption to this photo was, "All a girl ever needs is her camera and her book" (when I was still into photography)|
So instead I am settling for Life is Elsewhere by the same author. I like to put my name and the date of when I purchased a book on the upper right hand corner of the first page, and seeing that I remembered that I bought this book in 2010. I haven't finished reading the book since. Haha. So I'm re-reading it and familiarizing myself with Jaromil and Maman
|Life is Elsewhere|
One of my "cultured" friends, Mycko, has been bugging me to read and finish this book. He knows how much I love Kundera, and to him, this is Kundera's best work. So yes, here goes sleepless nights and foregoing sleep in a bus or preferring to walk briskly because I am falling in love once again.
