I think I’ve been a little disperse! I am used to read two books at the same time but never four. Usually I have a book to read at bedtime and another that I read during the day. Now I am with 4 in hand and that is not good.
I started one from my favorite bedtime writer, but usually I am so tired when I go to bed that I hardly can read a page of it. At this rate, I have a bedtime book until the end of the year!!!
Last December I started a book about photography. After four chapters, I just couldn’t read a single page more. I don’t feel a single desire of reading it. Am I picking the wrong books???
I received a fiction book as Christmas gift from a Mozambican writer. The plot is very interesting. The language appealing and easy to read… Nevertheless, I keep falling asleep at the first pages. When I return to it, I have to go back 10 pages or more because it involves so many characters that I forget who is who from one day to the next. This book tells the story of various individuals living in the same street. To avoid the repetitive reading, I keep a map where I have names, what they do and where they live. Isn’t this strange???
I was already feeling worried with myself because I am a voracious reader! I am used to start a book and read it in a blow. Recently I picked another book, an easy reading one that I almost finished during our last travel to South Africa. I avoid telling names because it looks like I am advertising places and products, but I can say that the author is a French woman. I never thought to find another person admitting an addiction to mille-feuilles! Besides, the life experiences and impressions of the writer in question are very similar to my owns. Finally I was reading a book like books should be read!!!
