Today is a strange reading day. I woke up today at 6:30am ready for work, suppose to read iGuerra! on the train, in continuation of Jason Webster introduction to Spanish history and culture. But then I decided to pick up Netherland because it is a short one week loan, I thought I should finish it as soon as possible, so I read 19 pages of it on the train to work. At work, I have decided to pinch the book titled Shanghai Baby home from my office cafeteria bookshelf which got me hooked on the first chapter while I was having lunch. Once home I curled up on my sofa and begin to read The Caliph’s House, ambitiously thinking maybe if I could finish the 356-page book by tomorrow. I received a rude shock today when I found out that I couldn’t renew it today because someone already reserve it from the library catalogue! 😦 By 10pm, the Caliph’s House book was so intriguing that I was already half way into finishing the book.
I get distracted by new books easily, I don’t think Iwill ever be discipline enough to follow a reading plan. Sigh! There is indeed such thing as quandary of having too many choices.
