Day 1 of the Daily Post’s Writing 101.
I like reading. Every year at some point I take up the resolution to read more. This summer, after graduation, I decided to read up all the books I have in my “Unread” list.
The books are:
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I have had this book since so long, but the size has always intimidated me. Status so far? Not even reached page 100.
- The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. A non-fiction I bought recently after reading about it on a blog I follow. I began reading it but haven’t completed it yet because I ended up getting distracted by the other books I bought while reading this one. What I liked so far about the book is that it doesn’t make you feel like you are reading a self help book. You feel like you are reading a book on research on habits and how they are built. Love the book, but it can be a bit of a heavy read for someone who’s only read fiction.
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I bought during Christmas after asking everyone about what they thought about the movie. Yes, I judged the book by its movie and bought it. The book, very much like the movie, in confusing at first, and that made me give up on the book. But I have plans to start it up again, once after I am done with reading the above books.
- The Revenant by Michael Punke.
- Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
- Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus by John Gray.
- The Fault in our Stars by John Green.
- Improve your Communication Skills by Alan Barker.
- Develop your Leadership Skills by John Adair.
I know, I know, I have 3 books left halfway through, 7 untouched, but I can’t help it! I love buying books, even when I know I have a pile waiting for me.
Whoops, my copy of Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan has just arrived. I think I’ll read that now. 😉
