On Reading

There is something wrong with me. I haven't finished a single book in the last one month. Oh, I'm reading all right. But I lose interest halfway and start another book. Here's a complete list of the books I've begun reading and abandoned in the last one month. Please note that this is NO commentary on the quality of writing of the below authors!
  • Michael Ondaatje - The English Patient (beautiful, beautiful book)
  • T. Coraghessan Boyle - If the River was Whiskey (Picked up in Blossom's - mostly cuz I liked the title!)
  • Sylvia Plath - The Bell Jar
  • Anjum Hasan - Neti, Neti (I've been wanting to read it ever since I read Jai Arjun Singh's piece on it here)
  • J R R Tolkien - The Hobbit (PDF)
  • Robert Jordan - The Shadow Rising (The fourth in the series - e-book version, though)
  • Kate Fox - Watching the English

I know the feeling.. But usually, if I cross 40 pages, i'll be able to finish the book.

Nothing wrong with you, relax. There are Others doing the same, ie. abandoning books half read. For example : Me !

on a lighter note, sylvia plath is enough to make one abandon reading altogether!
