The year of come back – in reading. 

Earlier this year, I wrote a posting, Vallaura Awards. One of its awards was given to the best book I’ve read in 2011. To my surprise, I realized that I hadn’t read so many book in that year. Shame on me! So, to prevent wasting of my valuable time of chances in getting wonderful knowledge from books, I decided to keep record of this year books.

What better way to restart a lost hobby besides reading a good Dan Brown’s sci-fi novel. So to start the counting, I sank in Deception Point. Not as enchanting as The Da Vinci code or Angels and Demons of course, but it surely did the trick. My desires to read had arose. Good job Dan Brown! And thanks to my dear friend, Fany who lent me the book which tragically torn apart by my puppy. heheheehe…

I did start it well. But it didn’t mean that it will stay on course. So, carefully I chose another novel. This time to play save, I chose novel that were recommended by friends. They were in Bahasa, my native language, 5 cm and Manusia Setengah Salmon. The first one was okay. But the later one which was recommended as a funny book almost killed my willingness to read. Sorry to say. Maybe I should have not expect something great from those books. But, I thanked Ribka for lending me the first book and Junita for the latter one.
