Books i'm reading, Books i've read

Well if you notice on the right side of the page, in the links bar, i always put a book which i'm currently reading there.

I love books, they are one of the things which can pull me away from the computer for hours and hours.

The funny thing is when you're carrying a book around in office during lunch when you tapao for lunch, you will get alot of ppl saying "wah you so 'yau man fa' (civilized), read novel wor" Hahaha how do you reply to that, it seems like there's less and less people reading nowadays.

Especially the younger people. I think they tend to go online and read e books more than anything or even surf alot of stuff. But to me books is a good way to release stress, lose yourself in their imaginary world of fiction, sci-fi, fantasy and much much more.

I've basically completed the Robotech series when i was a teenager at school. I bought all the books from a bookfair when it was cheap and poured through the entire 18 novels 4 times.

I've also completed most of the Shannara series by Terry Brooks, and some other Terry Brooks novels, i've stopped reading him already lately. Dunno why.

The Lord of the Rings Triology, read that really alot of times, plus the book before it the hobbit, and also the Silmarilion (I think it's spelt that way) one of the most confusing books.

Nowadays i'm suddenly drawn into the ancient wars of the British which comes in the Sharpe Series written by Bernard Cornwell, when they were one of the world forces, fighting in India during the 1800's and in Europe against the French and Spanish. It's basically Historical Fiction
Sharpe is the fiction, but most of the fights, and the wars are all historically correct. There's also a historical timeline and clarification at the end of the books to let you know what really happened, I wonder why i wasn't so intrigued by history when i was in my schooling years.

Ah well, maybe Malaysian history isn't much to read about. Oh well :P

Time to go home, ^^ a filler post kekeke, i still am thinking if i should write about the election coming up....i guess not....dunwan to be attacked left right center by unwanted people
