GB mentioned in this post about how she missed reading books during childhood. I can relate to her post very well. I had almost the same reasons and have never read anything other than academic books and some magazines.I actually started reading a lot ( according to my standards) only after I started blogging. Reading reviews from my favourite bloggers made it easy for me to select books and start reading. And I think I actually did a very good job in 2012. But last year it reduced.
I read books only during my bus travel to work and while coming back home. Its almost an hour long journey so I get good time to read. Once I come back home, I will be busy with dinner, office calls if any and once I am in bed even if I try to read after some 5 mins I would be off.
In 2013 I read few books like Hitchkiker’s guide to galaxy series , parthiban kanavu, Twenty eight and a half wishes, The witches, GodPlayer, completed ponniyin selvan and few others. I started using my company cab service and that is when my reading time got reduced. This cab driver drives such a big huge bus like a two wheeler changing lanes so quickly.I cannot handle rash driving I mean my brain will start doing imaginary stuff like if the driver is going fast and is about to apply brakes whether he does it or not I press my foot so hard as if that is going to stop the bus .
I could not read at all in my office cab as I had to keep an eye on road and apply my imaginary brake whenever required 🙄 . At night I would be tired and doze off as soon as I hit the bed.
This year I have collected lot of books based on reviews from blog friends. I hope I do a good job this year. If you read good books, let me know OK! 😀
