Warning: I am seriously considering about a month of daily posts. (All will be small and short (hence sweet and beautiful too)). Not decided yet. All it would take is getting up early, publishing a post, and starting the day. Are my readers with me? Ready to endure?
After coming back from home, I started reading “Accidental Mind” – concerning brain-theory/neuroscience – mainly because I wanted to know more about what happened to my dad’s brain.
But I figured soon that it was not the best book to read at that time. If you read non-fiction and have tears because you relate those theories to your life/near-n-dear, then it is time to put that book down and pick some light-weight reading. Mind needs time to heal.
Without reading/finishing even a book in 3 weeks, I was also starting to feel bad that I am not doing anything useful in life.
So, what could have been lighter/better than vampire stories? :)
So, after a loooooong time, I finished a book – New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. Don’t give me that look – I know, it is teenage stuff. But I wanted to know what is this big drama about “Edward Cullen” – vampire. (Had read the first book in the series a few months ago – and found it ok.)
I think the book is Ok, even though I fail to see the reason for such a hype. Girls are screaming with joy on hearing the name “Cullen”; but, to my eyes, he never looked like a decent hero. Never mind, next time someone talks to me about twilight, I can speak authoritatively.
For one thing, I like to have the privilege of saying – “I know what I am speaking of, I have read that”.
For another thing, it wasn’t too bad a book.
Anyway, just thinking – whether I should take the next one in the series? Or take a break.
Signing off, Sands.
PS: Mind teeming with thoughts…. will have to sit and structure them.
PPS: A little thanks to RG for Twilight introduction. :)
