Lately, my willingness to read is decreasing significantly. I’ve made target reading at least 25 book this year and I am 6 books behind this far. I’ve bought plenty of books since early 2016, however few of them are left dusted. I brought it forth and back to my house-camp each time I got my field break, and until this moment, it’s all left untouched. So, I write this post, which is dedicated to my sleeping-reading-mood. I wish this could be a booster to my reading mood.
You might have a clue that my knowledge of author and book is limited, even though I said thousands times that I like reading, which actually is limited to comic, Grisham or Christie books, and add with those popular children books. Other than that, I am almost clueless. So, that’s why I never call myself as a bookworm or bookish, although I also have thousands printed book on my bookshelf and book’s boxes. 😀 (Deducted those books that have been borrowed but have never made its way back to me) 😥
In order to make my author and book knowledge wider, I’ve been following few bookworms all over media social, especially instagram. Ever since, I’ve been captured the books that I’m interested to. So, here the list, which is influenced by random things (mostly subjective):
Hujan di Bulan Juni by Sapardi Djoko Damono
Before reading so many positive reviews about this poem collection by one Indonesian famous poets (I just found out about it), I fell in love merely by the title of this book when I first saw it at one of the biggest printed bookshops in entire Indonesia. I like June. That’s all.
The Other Hand by Chris Cleave
While this book makes me fall for its cover. 😀 😀
Once again I fall for the attractive cover of this book. Besides that, I know few people around me who love rain, which never fails to make me wonder why they love it so much. The screen captured of this book has been lasted for more than a year on my phone, however I’ve never read the book’s summary.
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying up by Marie Kondo
Found this on instagram. I am really bad at tidying up, so when I read the title I think this book was interesting. Later I the summary told me that this book was telling more tidying up. I still want to read it though.
Letter from Birmingham City Jail by Martin Luther King Jr
Reading the book about greatest people in history is one of my latest ambition and Martin Luther King Jr is one of them.
More of Agatha Christie and John Grisham.
forget where I took this picture
That’s mine, what about you? Do you eager to read book but just like me, has too many reason to not to do it?
