23.08.2009 | 重遇閱讀

之前話過自己開始有返啲閱讀嘅興趣, 但係就唔知要由邊度開始.. 噚日終於踏出咗第一步, 一口氣買咗兩本書, 有啲沾沾自喜添.. 都係同探討生命有關嘅兩本書, 最近對呢一類書頗有興趣.. 兩本都係全球暢銷作品, 算係多年前舊作, 現已譯成多國語言.. 就係以下呢兩本喇, 喜歡閱讀嘅朋友, 大概都對呢兩本作品有所認識吧??
i mentioned earlier that i started to have (gained back) some interest in reading, but just do not know where to start.. yesterday i finally made the first step out, i bought two books in one shot, both talking about positive life, am actually quite interested in these type of books lately.. both books are international bestsellers, they are actually not new anymore, being translated into multi languages.. so these are the two books i have bought, if you like reading, i supposed you briefly heard about them??

[1] 保羅•科爾賀《煉金術士》 [2] 米治•艾爾邦《在天堂遇見的五個人》
[1] Paulo Coelho "The Alchemist" [2] Mitch Albom "The Five People You Meet In Heaven"

今日開始睇第一本, 一頁一頁慢慢咁睇, 竟然有令我想一路繼續睇落去嘅衝動!! 原來閱讀嘅感覺係如此美好, 至少我而家嘅心情係咁樣認為..
started reading the first book today, i slowly read it page by page, and surprisingly i somehow got that urge to continue reading it all the way long!! never knew reading could be so fulfilling, at least now that my mood is telling me so..

  2. I have read both books and they are good! Although not a page turner for me lah. I like page turners! Usually reserved for fiction books.

    For the mitch Albom's book, I prefer his "Tuesdays With Morrie" - very touching.

  16. I have the whole range of Paulo Coelho books.

    Can borrow from me if you want to continue reading his books. Chloe likes it too.

    I finished his latest "Winner Stands Alone" which described Cannes Festival. "Eleven Minutes" is one of his best work, apart from Alchemist.

    Tuesday with Morie I also had this book and always cool to lend it to you.

    foongpc:
    hmmm, i don't think any book will be a page turner for the lazy me, haha!! well, i actually wanted to get "Tuesdays with Morrie" but then they don't have it in the bookshop when i wanted to get one, so i took "Five People You Meet In Heaven" instead :p

  26. Freedom09:
    have not yet start to get myself any Chinese books yet, will consider English ones first so that can improve a little on my English i hope.. yeah, sometimes reading is quite fulfilling, especially when you've got the mood and keep on flipping the pages.. :)

    Tekkaus:
    hmmm yeah i think it's a good start to get myself two books and start reading.. i hope this will be more persistent, haha.. i'm still reading the first book, only one third i've read.. wonder when will i start to read the second book, hehe :p

    Grass:
    haha, i seldom write reviews now because don't think i'm good at it, or maybe when i really got the mood and i think the books are really good to recommend, then i'll do a brief one.. :p

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mei Teng:
    hmmm, his books are nice you should try to get one and read one.. i started with "Eleven Minutes" a friend recommend, and i find it easy to read and so i continue with "The Alchemist".. :)

    Leu:
    nope you are wrong, my mind is never filthy.. reading enhances the purity of my mind is true.. hahaha!! :D

    Wois:
    yeah, the first step out is always very important.. so i tried to get myself reading, and i somehow find it quite interesting too.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. ladyviral:
    hehe, those type of books are quite addictive though i would say.. most of the time those books are quite lengthy, for a start i prefer to read something short, so that i won't get impatient for a start, haha!! yeah, writing in two languages is to help myself gain more readers.. :p

    uLi.佑莉:
    haha, of course photos are always more attractive than pure words.. i am also a lazy person, but i finally took the first step out and start reading, actually words give you more rooms for imagination.. :p

    the happy go lucky one:
    hahaha, may i know what "type" of books that you are enjoying reading lately?? kekeke :p

  29. Chin Weng 茶先生:

    bryan_shiro:
    yeah, and i must thank you for introducing the author to me.. i started with your "Eleven Minutes" and now i'm getting my very own "The Alchemist".. your book is still with me leh, must return that to you during our next meet.. i am planning to get "Tuesdays with Morrie" actually, just that can't find it in the bookshop that day..

    manglish:
    wow, RM200 worth of books, you must be a book lover i supposed.. yeah, that was a good start i've taken and i somehow think reading is something cool.. oh, i'm also quite interesting in history facts reading, the last dynasty the last eunuch the last emperor the last emperess, all are interesting to me.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. 董百勤:
    嘩, 原來你是Mitch Albom的忠實粉絲!! 他好像一共有7,8本作品吧?? 其實我想要看Tuesdays with Morrie的, 不過那天書店找不到.. Paulo Coelho的書也不錯看哦, 去買吧.. :)

    单身汉:
    對對對, 閱讀是一個很好的消遣哦.. 以前對閱讀沒有興趣, 現在重拾這個興趣, 希望能夠長久吧 :)

    雪芬:
    沒有喇, 不是因為你那一句話我才開始閱讀的, 是之前Pek借我那本Paulo Coelho的《Eleven Minutes》, 看了之後覺得喜歡, 那時才漸漸開始重拾對閱讀的興趣啊..

    海市蜃樓:
    哈哈, 咁又未, 淨係睇咗三分一本書啫, 邊有咁快文采飛揚啊?? 哈哈.. 其實我買雞腸書, 都係想增進自己雞腸水平囉.. :)

  38. Moments of reading a good book (especially in between sips of a nice cuppa, while slothed back in a comfy seat, with some soft music in the background ;) ) are certainly becoming a rarity in this fast-paced day and age. They are still a very refreshing change and welcome interludes compared to reading off the computer screen day in day out. I’m sure you’d agree. Happy reading :) .

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ayie:
    haha, a wide taste of readings you are doing huh.. no wonder you are hosting so many blogs :p

    IcyFire:
    yes i totally agree with you, i really don't like to read on my computer screen - i already have enough of this from work.. it really feel more substance holding a book, and this is what you call a real reading.. and of course a cosy environment will complement reading a lot.. :)
