leisure books.

Since I started working, I realized my reading habit had totally gone down the hill.
It's all because I didn't really have time to go look for books at Kinokuniya or MPH, let alone reading a book. So to compensate, I tried reading the articles (you know, real articles) in magazines but deep down I knew that won't do.

So I started looking for books that worth my time to read. The boyfriend told me to read "Game of Thrones", "The Hobbit", etc..err seriously, do you know me at all??!

Pfft.

(But after doing my research on the internet I found that those books are actually under the best sellers one. Not bad, my guy.)

I even consulted my colleague about it. She's a walking library, I swear.


Had to hide the fact that I've read all books by Sophie Kinsella, I mean, this colleague of mine doesn't have to know. Just because. But I have a feeling she does.

So I started hunting for good books to read during my not-so-free time. And I just found out that we are allowed to borrow ALL BOOKS FROM OTHER OPU'S LIBRARY!!

I mean, my office has its own resource centre, but the books are all about engineering, petroleum, natural gas engineering and what nots; surely doesn't fit in my "leisure books" category. So I went online to look for books they have in UTP (the biggest resource centre for us), and borrowed these.



Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Ines of My Soul by Isabel Allende
The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner
The Selected Essays of Gore Vidal

Am so excited to finish these so I can borrow other books in my list. Or at least, in Rory Gilmore's Books List. If you knew me, you'd know I've been watching the series my whole life so I guess it's time for me to actually know what they're talking about.

Gotta keep those magazines and Audrey Hepburn flip book (apparently it doesn't count pfft) in my closet now.

  1. Anna Karenina & To Kill A Mockingbird - kedua-duanya buku yang bagus untuk di baca. Anna Karenina karya terbaik Tolstoy selepas War and Peace.

    Selamat menghadam ilmu di bulan penuh keberkatan. Suka lihat orang bekerja tak hilang semangat membaca :)
