in the advent of a long 18hr odd flight, i caved and bought a Kindle! it is so easy to buy stuff off amazon, what with the 2 day shipping and whatnots.
right after buying it, i installed calibre and got all the books i wanted into the library properly. the books ranged from my childhood(ok maybe inner child) favorites to random Best Sellers. so there are the Artemis Fowl series, some Poe and other classics, collections by Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Murakami and a few others.
i was never one for books that werent sci-fi or thriller in nature but omg. reading books out of your comfort genre and giving them a go was the best thing ever.
the books that i completed recently were Perks of being a Wallflower and The Fault in Our Stars. so much feels, so many thoughts, so much pondering. been quite some time since i cried so badly for a book. also, im super glad nat read them. so we could both ponder about it. somehow pondering with someone makes it less sad. makes the world less senseless. maybe cause i tend to sink into this bleak depraved view of everything. now i need to read Life of Pi, so we can ponder about that too.
now im stuck on reading a collection of short stories. this:
some are great, some are uhm ok but the great ones are really nice though. especially those that doesnt seem to end.
