10.08.2009 | 開卷有益

細個時候作文或者填表, 大家其中一個嗜好應該會係寫「閱讀」.. 我覺得當時閱讀係一個好學生嘅標準活動, 不過實質上有幾鐘意, 我就已經唔記得喇.. 我只可以講, 除咗讀書時候要睇教科書同埋一啲(規定)故事書之外, 我之後係未完完整整咁睇過一本書囉..

不過人會老亦會變, 最近發覺自己漸漸鐘意逛書店, 尤其城中城間「紀伊國」書店.. 雖然唔會好似「書癡」咁呆上一日, 但係隨意拎幾本書翻兩翻, 就好似我鐘意逛超市咁百無厭倦.. 呢一排似乎對於清朝歷史甚感興趣, 係睇得劇集多嘅緣故?? :p

好想買啲書返去睇, 古有云「開卷有益」, 除咗可以增強知識同文學修養, 最緊要一樣嘢係--可以扣稅添喎!! 呵呵.. 大家有咩好書要介紹咁呢??
do you remember back in your schooldays, one of the items you wrote about your hobbies must have been "reading"?? i think that was pretty a standard model especially for good students, but if you were to ask whether i was really fond of reading, i don't think i can remember that.. what i can tell here is, other than textbooks and some story books i used to (or rather have to) read in school, i don't think i have really completely read up a book since then..

but people change (especially as you age), i started to find myself liking to hang round in bookstores, especially Kinokuniya in KLCC.. though i won't be spending a whole day in the bookstore like bookaholics, but flipping though books is almost as interesting as myself surfing in supermarkets (which i love to do).. recently am especially interested in the history of Qing dynasty, perhaps have been watching too much of those drama series?? :p

i've recently wanted to get myself some books, the ancient chinese says "you are benefited once you open a book", yes you got knowledge as well as literately refined, but more important is -- you can get tax rebate from books!! haha.. so any good books (of any type) that you would like to recommend??

    Kai and Baobei:

  20. You might like to give "The five people you meet in Heaven", by Mitch Albom a try :). Storyline is simple, short, unpretentious and thought provoking. It was on the New York Times bestseller list.

    The Abstract:
    "This story begins at the end: Eddie, an elderly amusement park maintenance man, dies on his eighty-third birthday in a tragic accident while trying to save a little girl. As he is dying, Eddie feels two hands in his. Eddie then awakens to the afterlife where he meets five people who, in some way, touched his life which he initially believed was uninspiring. These five people explain to Eddie his life on earth."

    The story will make the reader reflect on how the decisions & actions that we make & take each day will affect the lives of others, directly or indirectly...

    haha, why treat yourself so badly?? gotta read books until your eyes sore?? hmmm, you are working as a researcher?? let me guess, you sure are doing some geological research.. because you really impressed me with your previous posts on those 地質研究.. :)

    venus:
    哈哈, 不會看也要去逛?? 原來你是那麼的哈日的.. 我沒有去日本部門, 都是中英兩個部門罷了..

    summer:
    老實說, 我覺得kinokuniya是全城最不錯的書店囉, 裡面藏書量應該是所有書店冠軍吧?? 我最近喜歡一些清朝歷史, 和那些比較探索思維的書..

    chrisiew:
    小朋友, 呢啲咪就係成熟男人所應該有嘅魅力囉.. 同你咁精力充沛, 血氣方剛, 週圍紮紮跳唔一樣.. 哈哈!! 大家唔同market, 你唔駛驚~~ :p

  24. IcyFire:
    hey, this comes quite familiar to me, i think i've seen this book before.. maybe in the bestseller or highlights section.. yeah, you are right, as a start i think i should go for something simpler to understand.. i really don't want books that are too heavy till i lost interest again.. haha!!

    bluesky:
    當然啦, 不然你一位我只會吃sikiling和看金魚咩?? 我最近也喜歡看一些歷史的哦.. 嘿, 買書本雜誌可以扣稅的, 你不知道的咩??

    凡人館長《志強 cHeeKeOng》:
    哈哈, 我倒不是這麼覺得哦.. 每個人都有自己的品味和選擇啊, 有些女人就是討厭死愛看書的男人啊.. 哈哈!! :p

    ReplyDelete
  25. 哈哈!凡人馆长是对的。女人爱喜欢看好书的男人。你也对,女人讨厌“死读书”的男人。明吧?是有差别的!!

    死读书的男人,尤其是教科书,不动脑筋,全盘接受。女人不爱。喜欢看好书的男人,这种男人爱思考,有深度,女人爱。

    或许该说,有品味的女人爱喜欢看好书的男人。那些比较肤浅的女人,只爱有钱男人!哈哈!

  28. 要看就要看文学的
    我老师最近推荐了很多作家给我们认识

    三毛-不是三毛流浪记那个。。。

    龙应台

    林海音

    白先勇-这位写的有时是同志情的。

    巴金

    史铁生-这是一位瘫痪的作家

  29. 雪芬:
    哎呀, 正所謂"女人心海底針", 實在是沒有你那麼了解囉, 哈哈!! 有品味的女人愛喜欢看好書的男人, 膚淺的女人只愛有錢男人.. 那麼愛喜歡看好書和有錢男人的女人, 就是聰明的女人!! 哈哈~~ :D

    Pooi Tyng:
    hmmm, don't think i will go to those fair lor, always so packed with people.. anyway, i'm not a bookaholic, so getting a book in bookstore or book fair really is not a difference for me lor :p

    bluesky:
    嘿, 這個當然要記得啊, 要不然開開心心給了錢, 忘記了拿收據, 又或者收據隨手丟掉, 到時要做income tax的時候, 看到自己要繳那麼多稅, 真是欲哭無淚啊.. 哈哈!!

    Chi Leong:
    嘩, 文學作品啊?? 我怕會悶喎.. 三毛和巴金, 以前讀書的時候我都有聽過.. 我覺得我比較適合看一些比較快節奏的東西, 呵呵~~ anyway, thanks for your recommendation :)

  30. I love to read! When I was small, I used to read a lot! Now with working and blogging, I spend less time reading which is a shame!

    I read all kinds of books, fiction and non fiction. I like new age books, and books that talk on self improvement and spirituality.

    I also read books on feng shui and health.

    I highly recommend the book Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch if you are into such stuffs.

    I also like local books written by local authors.

  35. Kino bugs me, coz most of their books are sealed. I prefer the free reads at MPH or Borders :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Have you read The Last Lecture by the late Professor Randy Pausch? It's an inspirational book. Easy to read too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. foongpc:
    wah, you are really a bookworm woh, read so many types of books?? hmmmm, updating blogs and spamming other people's blogs until you don't have time to read?? why dusting them on your bookshelf?? come, give it to me, then i can read on your behalf, hahaha!! or you can come out with another blog contest to win your books?? yeah, a good idea, i'll make sure i get that, hehehe!! too bad you cannot read chinese, there are some really good books i would say, especially on chinese history i think it's best to read chinese ones rather than english translation.. i'm recently very interested in the Qing Dynasty history, don't know why.. i'll go check out the book your recommend, thanks for that.. :)

    海市蜃樓:
    人會老人會變嘛, 可能睇得港劇多, 所以對清朝歷史產生興趣添, 哈哈!! 你有時間睇書咩乜, 仲以為你依家有咗部Astro On-Demand, 梗係日日都孵響架電視機前啦.. 哈哈..

    HappySurfer:
    hmmm, nope i have not been reading more than 3 books since i left school, do you think i've heard of this?? hahaha.. anyway thanks for the recommendation, i'll go check it out later.. :)

  40. '女人爱喜欢看好书的男人'-这句话可以成立,倘若女人相信男人说自己喜欢看好书。

  41. 哦.... 清史? 是正史还是野史?
    几時相约一起走书局?

  42. Chloe (蔻依):
    你這個「嗜好:閱讀 = 世姐:和平」的比喻絕妙啊!! 字面上是稱讚, 其實實際上是揶諛, 哈哈!! 其實除了相信男人自己說喜歡看好書, 還有一樣東西就是怎樣知道那男人如何定義所謂的好書囉.. :p

    tagnan:
    正史野史都得架, 正史就當係增廣知識, 野史就當係增廣見聞.. 行書局?? 哈哈, 好似十幾年冇做呢件事喇, 你話茨廠街嗰啲?? 多兩個星期KLCC有書展喎, 你去??
