Sunday post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer..It's a chance to share the news...A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received  and share news about what it is coming up on the blog  for the week ahead..

The popularity of speed of reading is so wide that reading is always clubbed to the number of books you read...I too was by this plot when I was young, went on reading without relishing the soul of the book until my mother came to rescue one day by asking what I didn't like in a book, now you can go on and on about what you liked in a book but to answer the later you need to read not just browse through..unfortunately for me I somehow picked it along the way that reading is a habit, a way of life that should be loved to the core, for the customized personal reasons and that could be anything..For me books are my buddies who let me have a dull time, there is always something happening in my horizon in varied shades when I am reading...I get the an edge of years for experiences of a person reading a book which I wouldn't have otherwise could ever experience myself, isn't that a brilliant to go for??? plus it improves a keen observation, wide imagination and reflective analysis..So never force a person to read,that it seem like a chore...Once tasted the sweetness of reading, it becomes a lifelong love, and for me it started with fifteen minutes a day to cultivate the habit in me...Reading like any other habit takes its own sweet time to get into you just like learning to play an instrument, dance or music it has to be learnt to stay there forever..

That being said ,its very important to learn to read a book...Never think twice to abandon a book that doesn't strike a chord in you...Never force to read for great reviews, I have tried that myself but somehow it never works....So have fun choosing the books that appeal you , the ones that flints a smile across your face, that make you think and ponder on...Its great to stand my a horizon with changing vantage with every new book....
I would close my train of thoughts by quoting W.Somerset Maugham:

"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life"
Have a great ahead..I'll be seeing you around more this week..

  1. Superb post VB!

    When I was younger I read a lot of science fiction. Some of it was very goo, thought provoking and had underlying themes, philosophy, ascetic quality etc. I sensed that there was this substance underneath but I was often unable to "get it". This frustrated me and over the years I have worked hard to be a better reader.

    I actually find that blogging and writing about what I read helps a lot. Though it slows me down it forces me to think as well as to organize my thoughts.
