24.11.2010 | 閱前讀後

發覺自己從來未似最近咁頻密地閱讀, 唔知係唔係人老咗, 生活習慣都會有啲改變咁呢??

以前從來都唔喜歡閱讀(話係嗜好其實都係敷衍老師啫), 除咗教科書之外, 唯一會睇書係因為需要交閱讀報告.. 但係最近就好似睇上癮咁, 睇完一本再接一本, 睇晒又繼續入貨.. 早幾日仲好豪氣咁一次過買四本書(個人記錄呀), 不過呢一系列19世紀經典文學作品, 一本只係RM9.90, 非常之值得買噃~~
i realised i have never been reading so much like i did recently, really wonder as you get older, your lifestyle will also have a little change??

i remember i never like reading that much (even to say reading as a hobby was rather to please the teachers), other than academic textbooks, the only reason i read was because of the reading report.. however recently i found out i've been quite fond of reading, one book read after another, and new books bought after another.. few days ago, i even bought four books one shot (my very personal record), the series of 19th century classic literature for only RM9.90 per book, quite worth for money i thought~~

    ReplyDelete
  34. Never like to read in my younger days not even badnewspapers but love comic books. However slowly and safefully (safe+careful) pick up reading in later years but mostly on mystical & detective books and while working in corporate world more towards motivational & self development books. Books with pictures, charts or cartoon would get me hooked on for hours haha..

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just bought two books 'Rich Brother Rich Sister' & 'Outliers' whoa after hmmm donkey years that I last parted my $$$ for a book.

    ReplyDelete

  46. 其实读书实在是有益无害的,
    读越多书就吸收越多人家可能用多年来才得到的理论和知识。
    只是很多人都懒惰罢了。
    我以前也是不爱看书的,
    不知是不是如你所说的,
    人渐渐老了,也渐渐变了……

  47. 自從BABY來我傢之後
    我也少看書了

    ReplyDelete
  48. When I was younger, I used to read tons and tons of books. Reading a novel in one sitting, forgoing meals and sleep was normal. Now tha I'm older, it's hard to see me read a book. :(

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. 书中自有黄金屋,书中自有颜如玉。。。
    读书好!

    ReplyDelete
  51. haha, i won't be surprise things will change as you age.. because you'd think differently as you mature.. agree??

    ReplyDelete
  52. those are really classics!! and RM9.90 each book is definitely a good deal, wise choice.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. hope you are enjoying the books now?? so how long does it take you to finish reading all the 4 books??

    ReplyDelete
  54. @ foongpc:
    yeah, i think you should start to read again lah.. for me, i read about one or two chapter while i commute to work everyday, that's the only time i have for reading.. other than that, i'll also rather blogging and facebooking, haha~~ :D

    @ Pete:
    yeah, it sometimes will be addictive, especially for nice books i'll keep on reading..

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ bluedreamer27:
    errr, i guess it also depend on which type of books you are reading.. i guess reading those motivational books would definitely get new attributes and possibilities in your life.. yeah, i saw the trailer for the movie Gulliver's Travel, i find that interesting too and will go and watch, but before that i'll read the book first, haha!! oh you are right, sometimes you'll get hooked to the book if it's very interesting.. did that couple of times, hehe :p

    @ blee:
    well, i think if you really wanted to do something, sure you'll be able to find time for that?? :p

  56. @ reanaclaire:
    haha, i'm the opposite.. i didn't read much last time, but have been reading quite a lot recently.. but then it has nothing to do with blogging though~~ :p

    @ 单身汉:
    哈哈, 有什麼好勤力好勁的?? 也只不過是看一些書罷了嘛, 很多人都這樣的啦.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  57. @ bluecloud:
    是呀是呀, 一開始你就會很想把整本書看完去的, 而且看完了之後, 會有一種成就感, 就是終於把這麼大一本書看完了.. :)

    @ Ayie:
    yeah, i guess that has something to do with getting matured and how you are thinking as you age?? :)

  58. @ edward:
    係架, 以前學校要我哋睇書然後交份閱讀報告上去架, 中學時候甚至有本書係規定要睇, 年中同年終都有考試架..

    @ Tekkaus:
    errr, opposite?? i think same right, as i also read more than i did last time.. yeah, those are really classics and only at RM9.90, quality print too~~

    ReplyDelete
  59. @ suituapui:
    yes, really very worth the money.. RM9.90 each for the classic treasure, and the printing is good quality too.. that's why i didn't think much and grab 4 books at a time.. haha!!

    @ khengsiong:
    Charles Dickens係一個好偉大嘅作家, 寫過好多經典作品架, 你應該有睇過但係可能唔知作者係佢呢?? Gulliver's Travel我都好似有睇過, 應該係叫"小人國奇遇"之類係嘛?? 1984 - BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU?? 正唔正啊?? 個title都已經唔錯喇喎~~

    ReplyDelete
  60. @ Caroline Ng May Ling:
    haha, if you really want to read the books i'm sure you'll find time for that, so the reason why you didn't read is because of one thing only -- LAZY!!! hahaha.. well, i guess if you have time, you also want to go tweeting with your boyfie lah right?? kekeke.. yeah, really RM9.90 each only, and the books are really in good printing quality..

    @ Mei Teng:
    haha, then we are really different.. i guess have been studying too much academically till i don't even like to read books last time.. but really have no idea what actually triggers me to read more books now.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. @ uLi.佑莉:
    haha, quite ok lah, cos i will only read a little bit everyday while i commute to work.. i'm not those bookworm will finish reading a book in couple of days lor.. it normally take me couple of weeks to finish one book..

    @ Bananazஇ:
    haha, is that true?? well, i definitely not a leader, and it actually also depend on what kind of books you are reading right?? haha, i think many would love to read comic books right, since it's easier to read and more entertaining.. i don't really like to read motivational books, i kind of like facts and history kind of books.. thriller, sci-fiction, novel, romance certainly not my cup of tea.. oooh, "Outliers" by Malcom Gladwell?? i read his "What the Dog Saw", errr, not really interested me but not a bad read also.. that 4 books?? errr, i think will be enough for me to survive till 2011, haha!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. @ Merryn:
    haha, i also spend more time in reading blogs than reading a book.. i only read a few pages everyday while commuting to work only.. :p

    @ Small Kucing:
    oh, exactly the same book from the same publisher?? then of course BBWS will be cheaper lor, but then RM9.90 is acceptable lah, for the good quality i really think this price is real worth for money leh.. yeah, i just finished reading "The Secret Garden" and i like it very much.. now starting to read Charles Dickens book, but find it rather quite boring, too literature for me already..

    ReplyDelete
  63. @ iamthewitch:
    hehehe, then i guess you would have to influence saucer to like reading also.. but i think sure you'll have personal time everyday to do what you like right?? perhaps all the personal time you have, you'd spend them on blogging already, haha~~ :D

    @ 海市蜃樓:
    嘩嘩嘩, 隨便睇幾本書咋, 咩又才子又有文采唧?? 傻咗啊你?? 哈哈~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  64. @ Wai Kitt:
    haha, sorry to say that i'll never become a bookworm, i just read a few pages a day while i commute to work only.. haha, there are also short and sweet stories you can buy mah, just start with thin ones lor.. :)

    @ 发白日梦^^:
    其實不是真的很文學那種喇, 你以為莎士比亞咩?? 那些我真的不會看囉.. 冒險的還好, 我最近比較喜歡看那些寫實的或者和歷史有關的書.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. @ Medie007:
    well, i don't think you'd have time to read right?? having to work and study for 36 hours a day, hahaha~~ :D

    @ Kelvin:
    oh, i've not read "Great Expectations" yet, but am now reading "Tales of Two Cities", hmmm, think a bit boring and too literature for me..

    ReplyDelete
  66. @ 穷光蛋市长:
    其實還好喇, 不會很厚的, 慢慢看肯定會有一天看完的, 呵呵!! 其實有時間閱讀一下, 真的是不錯的呀~~ :)

    @ Ashley:
    真的真的, 我是最近這一兩年才開始(不知道為什麼會)看書的.. 其實是沒有什麼特別心機, 只是純粹為了看書而看而已.. 我覺得你也應該是個閱讀之人吧?? 至少應該會看關於美術和烹飪的書吧?? 嘻嘻~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  67. @ venus:
    哈哈, 可能你會看多一些關於baby的書??

    @ lina:
    hmmm, for me i will never get hooked to a book till your level of forgoing meals and sleep.. i'd just read books slowly, few pages a day while i commute to and from work.. that is more of a leisure than anything else.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. @ Bengbeng:
    oooh, i guess you are a book lover and love to read a lot?? i think you should have got the books since RM9.90 each with very good quality print, it's very worth for Benghui's collection..

    @ cindy:
    哈哈, 不錯啦其實, 也沒有理那麼多的黃金屋和顏如玉喇.. 想看那時就拿來看囉~~ :)

  69. @ HappySurfer:

    @ victor:
    hmmm maybe you are right, we think differently and more maturedly as we age and gain more life experience.. no idea when i'll be finishing the books, but guess would be next year definitely, haha!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  70. Only Rm9.90 per book. It is really cheap.
    How long you finish all those books. You read very fast.
    So far, I haven’t finish one book which I brought here for 1 month.
    Paiseh….

  71. I am also picking up reading lately.

    I finished 2 Classics George Orwell novel, Animal Farm and 1984. Animal Farm is a reflection of events of Russian Communism leading up to Stalin in Power. Read the book 1st, then check out Wikipedia for some explanation.

    1984 is George Orwell's vision in the future, written in 1948. If he is still alive, he will see that alot of his prophecies came true. The "simplifying" ,"editting", changing" the facts of history is happening now in modern education. If we do not start to educate the next generation about "real" history, and constitutional rights of the people, we will be enslaved by the few "Elites/Ruling Group" who have the knowledge.

    I highly recommend the book: Nothing to Envy http://bryanshiro.blogspot.com/2010/11/nothing-to-envy-real-lives-in-north.html

    Now reading books by Jim Marrs.

    ReplyDelete
  72. @ CH Voon:
    yeah RM9.90 really worth to buy.. errr, normally takes like a month to read a book lor, i take the opportunity to read while commuting to work mah.. aiyah, you are in Russia now, didn't bring any books over to read meh since over there so boring..

    @ bryan_shiro:
    i thought you have been reading books always?? hmmm, instead of knowing you picking up reading, it's more surprise that you are coming back to the blogsphere, haha!! actually i started to read more after borrowing the book "Eleven Minutes" from you, since then i started to read more often.. hehe~~ :p
