I love books. There's no question about that. In fact, if there was no bed inside my room, people might mistake it for a library or study room upon seeing it for the first time. Heck, I myself sometimes think that my room is not meant to be inhabited! Just look at my two bookshelves! It's not yet that many (as compared to other book collector's stuff), but I take great pride in my book collection. It wasn't easy to buy the books that I wanted... It took years of persuading my parents and cousin to buy some rare pieces in there!
|This is my first bookshelf and it is attached to my room's wall, just behind my door. Once, my room got flooded with rain water since our house's roof gutter was blocked. Since my room was directly below that roof gutter, much of the disaster took place in it. Unfortunately, a lot of books 'perished' from that ordeal so I had to start a new book collection and these books are the new contents of my new book collection. |
|Since I have kind cousins who share the same passion for books as I do, they also lent me additional reading materials. 1) Richard Bach's "Illusions" 2) Ricky Lee's "Para kay B" 3) Mary Stewart's "The Last Enchantment" 4) Ekaterina Gordeeva's "My Sergei" and 5) Hella Haase's "In a Dark Wood Wandering." Just to give you an idea, I'm interested in reading historical novels especially those that involve the earlier ages of European history. Sometimes though, I do make exceptions in the books that I read. As long as its good and the theme appeals to my taste, I read it.|
|Prior to meeting with my cousin, I was reading Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, but I had to switch to Joel Derfner's "Swish" since my cousin emphasized that she needed it back as soon as possible. I think I'll enjoy reading it since it was written by a gay author and its supposedly very funny. I think I'll be having a good laugh later! Anyway, just to inform you dear reader, I will start writing my book reviews after this entry. I'll probably make a review on the books that were included in my book diary... However, if you have a suggestion on what book I should review first, just leave a comment. If you also have book recommendations, please, do not hesitate to share your ideas! I made this blog for all book lovers anyway! But beware though, my reviews will involve some really frank and honest opinions of mine. I would not hold back!|
