hey its Arwa, welcome to the corner shop. I realised despite my dynamic love for books and literature, I haven’t done any bookish posts till now so letss goo
so I wasn’t completely sure what I would be doing because reviews aren’t exactly my thing but okayy
ps: book cover pictures are from good reads
1, What im reading,
im reading ‘Dear Martin’ by Nic Stone. quick history, I bought this book because I read another book of this ‘odd one out’ I loved his way of writing and am intrigued by the topic of discussion – racial inequality.
2, What I’ll read next
I’ve been keen on reading this book for a long time but I delayed it, waiting for the right moment hehe 😉 this book is about murder, and revolves around mothers. it is supposed to be a balance between murder and comedy. sounds fun already:)
3, What I read before ‘Dear Martin’
this book is the best one ive read so far and Im not kidding! usually I dislike rating books as it is often a tough decision, but I feel this is it, my favourite book so far! there are some books when you think and feel a change or something different when you finish the book. this book is one of them. it revolves around 2 young boys, one from a wealthy background, another not. it highlights their unbreakable bond and the truths they unravel as they grow up and the problems they face. this book is heavy with emotion and a must read for anyone who has an interest in books!
of course this post doesn’t end here, I wanted to have this discussion for a long time,
Ebook vs print
kindles have really become a thing these days, with the prices cut lower than the paperback and availability of is much more easier, the collection diverse and kindle being compact and easier to carry around people surely prefer this bliss of a digital library. however the print media is suffering great losses, while many (*raises hand*) still prefers paperback and hardcover over the ebook for various reasons most common being the’ feel’ and the lack of awareness of online transactions etc. Eyesight is another problem (which implies to me here) despite kindle’s book like structure where it is not possible to read ebooks in the dark, it is advisable not to use kindle, many people argue about this but I chose not to take a risk 😉
What do you think?
BOOKS: boon or bane?
I know a few people would kill me if I this but I feel they are a bane too-
#1 I get very easily distracted and thereby im not able to *focus* on other work like studies and classes.
#2 excessive reading makes my head hurt and my eyes teary
#3 I become a couch potato 😉 I dont help in any work and prefer to sit and read in a corner (teehee)
#4 my posture is ruined, because I can’t keep in check my posture when read cause im usually ‘lost’ in the book.
I think you know it all, they are the best, they put my mind off something I dont want to think about, they help me, they entertain me, they take me to another world even though im actually stuck at home, they replace television for me most of the times and is much more better to the eye than television, they- I think you got the point though.
what do you think?
