Merry Christmas and Happy NEw Year

Hello there. Just like to wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I hope you had a fantastic reading year!!

I’m not all that Christmasy, but this week I have spent hours cleaning out my wardrobe and kitchen, cleaning every piece of dust, cobwebs, re-arranged my bookshelf, back up my hard disk, throwing out tons of papers, and texting my fingers sore of Yuletide and new year wishes….. I get edgy when I don’t finish my long to-do list in one go, so needless to say there wasn’t much time spend on reading.

By the way, I’d like to thank and wish a Happy Christmas to anyone that read this blog this year. As this Christmas is special with so much snow in England, I hope your Christmas and New Year is special too.

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
