A Book Affair I could’nt Miss..

book1

This weekend I attended the biggest book fair of my life in MINES Mall,Malaysia. Discounts were at an all time high i mean books were going for as low as $1.00. It was my ultimate dream, with over 3 million books to choose from, I felt like a child in a candy store. There were fiction books, cook books, kids books, photography, you name it it was probably there.

I went in there ready for battle, battle for some books that is. With so many people there, it was hard moving around and finding books which i wanted to get, not to mention the strain of having to carry around a big box that I can put all my selections into.

My feet hurt from moving around so much in that huge area, searching and grabbing whatever book called my attention. I was hot, sweating and more than very hungry. And then when I finally had all the books i wanted( more like all the books I could afford tot take) I finally went to pay and the ques were insanely long. I was exhausted, but kept going, the end was near and I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. All that said, it was well worth it and the most unpleasantly fulfilling experience of my life. 😀

Enough of my complaining, these are all the books I bought! I have already finished reading one in one night. 😀

The Pleasure of Reading..

book

Some people get pleasure from picnics and tours, some from playing games. Others like to discuss various topics and find pleasure in it. But the reading of books provides us with such pleasure as we do not get from any other activity. Great is the pleasure of books.

Literature is said to mirror society. Writers put in their books not only their own ideas and feelings, but also what they observe and find in society. The books of the past reflect the condition of the times in which they were written. By reading books written by great thinkers, we come in contact with their minds. Books enable us to know the best of different countries. So, if we want to keep abreast of the great minds of all ages, we must read books.

When we are alone, books are our best friends. They entertain us in our spare moments. Good novels, books on poetry and short stories, give great enjoyment. At times we become so absorbed in our books that we forget even our important engagements. Loneliness is no trouble for a reader.

If we are in a cheerful mood, our joy is increased by reading. When we are in a depressed and dejected mood, books console and soothe our troubled minds. They provide us with the best advice and guidance in our difficulties. Indeed, books are out best friends as they help us in our need.

Books contain grains of wisdom. They give us sound moral advice. That is why all women around the world love the Fifty Shades of Grey..Where a powerful, sex magnet, bombshell of a man meets and utterly loves and completes his woman( leaving us the readers fanning ourselves from the pure pleasure of him) It is through the reading of books that we learn to love virtue and hate sin. The reading of good books develops and elevates our character.

Now-a-days the world is changing fast. A man cannot remain in roach with the changes in his own country, or in the world, without reading the latest literature. One who wants to be respected in cultured society must keep himself well-informed. Good magazines, newspapers and other books provide us with valuable upto-date information. It gives us great pleasure to feel that our knowledge is upto-date. We get great satisfaction when we feel ourselves to be well-informed and capable of moving in any educated society. Reading of good books is the key to the store-house of pleasure.

It was the English author Bacon who said that reading makes a full man. No one can question the truth of this saying. But we cannot derive full advantage from reading, if our choice is not good. Some books are such that instead of doing any good, they do positive harm to the readers. Such books must be avoided. Cheap books, not in cost but in contents, should not be read, even if they provide some amusement and entertainment. It is the reading of good books alone which bestows upon us the maximum benefit.

Not only is reading utterly delicious, a study has just been published finding that reading for pleasure makes your brain literally grow.

So what are you waiting for?!?! get to the nearest book store and get to reading! 😀

Ruby…

AUTHOR: V. C. Andrews

SYNOPSIS

In the heart of the bayou, Ruby Landry lives a simple, happy life. But innocence can’t last forever… The only family Ruby Landry has ever known are her loving guardian, Grandmère Catherine, a Cajun spiritual healer, and her drunken, outcast Grandpèrb Jack. Although thinking about her dead mother and mysterious father sometimes makes her feel as mournful as the wind sighing through the Spanish moss, Ruby is grateful for all she has. Her life is filled with hope and promise…especially when her attraction for handsome Paul Tate blossoms into a mysterious, wonderful love. But Paul’s wealthy parents forbid him to associate with a poor Landry, and Grandmère urges her to follow her dream of becoming a great painter, foreseeing a time when Ruby will be surrounded with riches in the dazzling city of New Orleans! Yet she cannot know how close that uncertain future looms…. In a faded photograph, Ruby glimpses for the first time the image of her father — and learns of a shameful deception and a shocking scheme of blackmail that now must come to light. Stunned by these revelations, she is devastated when Grandmère dies, leaving her to seek out her father in his vast New Orleans mansion. There, in a house of lies, madness, and cruel torment, Ruby clings to her memories of Paul to keep her heart alive. For only their love can save her now….

REVIEW

I actually read this novel when i was 13 years old, my first real novel to read and i loved it then and i love it still. Ruby is a very good book. While her character got on my nerves at times—she is very willing to believe the best in people and is so easily deceived and taken advantage of it makes me want to smack her—she is generally likeable.

The book starts with her life on the bayou with her grandmother and her boyfriend Paul, a life that is genuinely happy for her. Things fall apart as Grandmere dies, she discovers Paul is her half-brother and her truly odious grandfather sells her into a marriage to a cruel, wealthy man. She runs away, seeking her father’s family. Things don’t really get better as she’s pushed into a world of betrayals and double faces. Giselle, her twin, is a selfish, vain, and cruel character who resents Ruby’s intrusion into their lives. While you hate her, it’s still easy to understand why she is that way; and Daphne, her mother, is a hateful, jealous woman who is honestly chilling to read. The book is very engaging, I found myself desperately flipping the pages toward the end, with a startlingly real and evocative cast of characters. I also liked the mix of Voodoo through in, and the way in which it was portrayed. Spooky stuff.

All in all i suggest everyone read this book, but the book is rather old. 🙂

Love Lies…

Author: Adele Parks


SYNOPSIS

Why is this modern day Cinderella homesick for a rented two-bedroom flat in Clapham? How do you know whether love is telling the truth? Fern must choose which version of this fairy tale is hers…

REVIEW

This was the second book by this author that i read, the first one is “Tell me something” and i have to say even though it was thoroughly interesting it just didnt keep me attached to it. None the less the book is intriguing, a modern day fairy tale( since all women now days dream about marrying that celebrity that they have been pinning for for so long instead of Knights in shinning armors). And then when she meets her dream man and leaves the boring one she has been with for years, she realizes it is not a fairy tale at all. The character development is really good, you can see each one coming into their own, it really shows the flaws of each of them as you get to know them more. I am not a huge fan of the way Adele Parks writes her novels, but then again that’s just a preference i have.

If you want a good chic lit read, this is the book for you( I believe this is what this author is amazing at). It is funny,emotional, and i know a lot of women will connect with the story line.
