When a reader falls in love with a book, it leaves its essence inside him, like radioactive fallout in an arable field, and after that there are certain crops that will no longer grow in him, while other, stranger, more fantastic growths may occasionally be produced.

It’s almost 6 in the morning, I’ve been up all night and now I’m crying so badly I can’t even see the keyboard properly.

I have got to stop reading books that make me feel like trucks are running over me.

As I have mentioned in the previous post, I did not anticipate how dark the theme of this book would be. That was probably my fault for not reading the jacket of the book, which is the downside sometimes with ebooks. Catered to a younger demographic however, the phrasing of some of the sentences kind of lacked for me, but nonetheless, the storyline was interesting to say the least. It was one of those books that made you think about life and your role in it. It also made me think of the role I played in the lives of others, and whether I was being a positive or negative impact.

Overall, it was worth the read…if not for the storyline, at least for the moral lesson to always be kind to others; everyone has their own personal struggles that they keep to themselves, so you never really know what a person is going through.

Great weekend for reading :)

"I am a real man, he told the mirror, with a real history and a planned-out future. I am a man to whom certain things are of importance: rigour, self-discipline, reason, the pursuit of what is noble without recourse to that old crutch, God. The ideal of beauty, the possibility of exaltation, the mind."

Everyone seem to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

The thing that makes books beautiful is the fact that a book can stay around for hundreds of years, but the characters stay the same age forever and when we’re that age or our kids are that age, we can just feel like we connect with them on a personal level

Question

kayaway:

I asked him whether or not he likes to read, my secret litmus test.

He told me that he does, and went on to sing the praises of “real books” for their weight, the pleasure of turning their pages, and best of all — their smell.
