Hey guys! It’s me! Remember me? Miss me?
So this week, as you all can read from the title, I’m gonna talk about books....not boobs, okay? Urghh...
As some of you might already know that I really enjoy reading books, but obviously not all kind of books because I hate text books and I’m not really into those biography thing. Other than that, I’m willing to read.
I know I have written about this but I’m just gonna “replay” for those who don’t know. I only started to be interested in reading novels when I was working at the optometrist a few years ago, I think it was like 6 years ago? So when I was a kid, in school, reading novel was not my thing, my sisters, yes but not me. I was more into comics and short, short stories.
Anyway, before I continue with this topic, I should let you know that I’m posting this not because I want to encourage you to read a book, even though reading books can really help you in a lot of ways, like making your vocabulary much better, fill in your spare time, widen your imagination and a few other things.
The reason I’m posting this is because I wanna share my opinion regarding books and reading and also about my recent participation involving books.
Let me be honest, I didn’t read any books for like months now but not until recently. I am currently reading Ellen Degeneres ‘ book titled ‘Seriously....I’m kidding’. And it’s awesome. I recommend you to read it.
Someone once asked me why I don’t just download e-book or audio book instead of buying physical books. I have never try audio book but I’m planning to. However, I have tried e-book before, but I just don’t really like it. I mean, yes, it’s convenient and you don’t have to carry 500 pages book everywhere and it’s cool that you can turn the pages with your finger tips on the screen of your phone but one, it will drain your battery. Two, I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel right for me. So I prefer physical book.
Okay, my recent participation in an activity involving books is about sharing your favourite books or any books in general to a stranger. Let me explain how this activity goes. It takes place in Facebook, so you don’t have to go to places and gather around exchanging books, it’s all online....except when you need to send the book, you need to courier it or post it.
This is how it goes, trust me, its fun:
Person A will post a status update about this activity and ask whoever interested to join to leave a comment. You are interested and you commented. Person A will reply by giving you a name and an address for you to send your favourite book or any book (The name and address is real, not fake). And person A will also ask you to post the same status as Person A and giving you his/her name and address. The reason why Person A gave you his/her name is for you to send it to the person who will comment on your status update. And you will also do the same thing Person A did to you. So chain will continue on.
Pretty simple, right?
So, I’ll be sending my favourite book to a stranger tomorrow. I hope he will like it the way I do.
So that’s all for this week.
Before I’ll end this post, I just want to write, READ A BOOK!. J
This week I wanna know what is your favourite book? How many times have you read them? Do you prefer physical books or e-book or audio book?
