Hey pals, it’s been a while . Well, I guess most of you didn’t even notice my temporary absence…
What have I been up to, one may ask?
I have been occupied with reading. Yes! That’s right, I decided to take a short break to refuel the engine upstairs. Not that it was totally empty but it sure needed to be refilled.
As 2014 was coming to a close and I was into a ‘sober’ reflection on how productive the year had been and possibly brace up for a better new year. I noticed I had read very few books and but more of news and of course, blog posts.
My reading culture was almost at it’s lowest in many years. I was more interested in picking up my PC or the phone at the slightest opportunity. Picking up a book ( except for Finnish language materials) was hardly ever a close option.
I, that was a voracious reader only a few years ago, barely looked beyond book covers. I remember I used to read any book that came my way and within a short time, I would have devoured it.
Back then, I would rather read than watch movies.
And I could boldly announce that reading was my hobby. Could I honestly say the same thing nowadays?
So I wanted to change the habit of writing more than I read. I promised myself that I will read more in the new year, after all, I wasn’t appointed a library prefect for nothing.
Coincidentally, I got about four novels for Christmas and I’m determined to read them all within a short period.
I have began with two already, and there’s no going back.
I will be sharing some of my reading experiences with you in subsequent posts and I can’t wait to become a reader once again.
Do you have any reading suggestions, fiction and non fiction? Have you written a book that you will like reviews on?
