Books For A Treat

I've been guilty of not buying or reading any books lately. It seems like I had too much on my plate that I can't sit still and enjoy a good book. :(

Anyhoo, as a treat for Raimie's good results at school, he asked for me to buy him some books and of course, I happily obliged. ^^

One book was about drawing (which by the way, he loves to do) and the other was a Malay book. If you read my earlier post, you'd know that he needs to be better in his Malay language!

And I can't resist picking up a book for myself too. I haven't started reading it proper yet, just a few pages. I'm pacing myself (heh!) because I plan to read it all while we are flying for 6-7 hours to Tokyo! *^-^*

  7. That "Born to Run" is great! I even got the audiobook to listen many times in my car.

  9. @SK,
    He doesn't ask for toys because he knows the toys he wants will be bought in Japan, what. ^^

    I don't sleep in the plane, not even on a red-eye. Anyway, I can "tahan" my eyes if I'm reading for pleasure but after 5 minutes reading something for assignment i.e study, I'll fall asleep! LOL

    Anyway, I read fast. Sure no problem finishing that book in one flight time. :)
    I once read Harry Potter books from Book1 - Book 4 in one day. No sleep, no makan, only intermittent toilet break and a panda eye later but finish them all in 24 hours. ;)

  12. @HappySurfer,
    He loves to sketch and draw so when he was leafing through the pages of the book, I encouraged him to buy it. :)

  13. I bet if you had free time in Tokyo, you would run!:P

    Although the book does look good. Reading is a habit that would never go away - no matter how long it's been.

  14. I have tons of books still wrapped in the shrink wrap they came in that I just don't have the time to read, what with work and running. The wife is already warning me about buying more books and not reading them ... LOL!

    BTW, the big bad wolf sale is on again and I'm dragging the wife there this Thursday to buy more books that I won't have the time to read ... hahaha!
