Third in the series and final one after a long time..
I wish i read more often..i wish i was an ardent reader...
sadly..i am not...
I believe i have a decent collection of books according to things i would want to know and would love to believe in...but most of them still smell of the newness and I EXPECT to read them someday.....
After a sudden sickness ... i had to take an off..and i am not a bit sorry (heh! as if i mind bunking office ;)) .. Wanted to read something that was short and still worthwhile....
I grabbed the book and locked myself in the loo, while the plan was to just get on it and come out... I came out after 1 hr 15 mins after timely reminders by my ex-flat-mates...
My first book to be completely read in one of the weirdest manner!! :DD
I have read the book 3 times after that!(But the following reads were at better places;))
2. Illusions - Please follow the link
3. Bridge Across Forever
Romance is not something i pick up to read.. I have not read a single MnB , I remember having picked up one Daniel Steel that too after much pestering by one of my college mates..and i had to close it midway!
We all have our own idea of romance and i had mine and call it pride or whatever , i felt no book was needed to add essence to it....
I remembered one of my friends' talking about it and picked this book by accident yesterday and finished it in one go :) ... Beautiful but most of it was one big DEJA VU! :|
But then i read this and was amused at the irony of life and its learnings......the writer's own being the biggest example!
Philosophy to some, is boring, some, an inspiration and for some a verbal representation of something they already know or believe in!
I just know that there are somethings which not only put an instant smile on your face but pump life within...today's read was just the same!
What i find special about bach's books are that they are multi-directed!...like this one, may be on a broader canvas,is about his courtship but there is much more to read,learn and admire in what he writes.....
Somewhere he said something about smoking :
'You matter so little to me that I don't care if
you can't breathe. Die if you want, I'm lighting up!' Not a
courteous habit, smoking. Not something to do around people
Adds to my will :)
His page on wiki is something which captured few of the quotes i liked...
Even his humor in the conversations makes you giggle if you are actually involved! If i had to exaggerate and if you are willing enough his books mighty end up making you a pilot therotically (whatever that means)!
But but..the bestest thing about his books..THEY ARE SHORT AND I FINISH THEM!
Oh yeah..if you were wondering where i read this one....It was an e-book and i have not thought of giving my lappy special visits to some auspicious places till now ;)
I thougt i would have something to write about the PG Wodehouse i picked up two months back... but as the time suggests.. i dont think i am finshing it any day!
