Books are awesome

Because there are 31 days in July and only 30 days in the meme, I thought I would share this comic that really conveys my love for books and what books mean to me on this last day of July. 63. CARL SAGAN: Books are awesome. The rest of the comics on this site are … Continue reading

Day 30 – Your favourite book of all time

Yes, it’s been a whole month about books, books and more books, but the end is near. The finish is at hand! And without further ado, my favourite book of all time would be Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. It’s the book I would want to have with me if I was stranded … Continue reading

Day 29 – A book everyone hated but you liked

This feels awfully similar to the post on which books I think are underrated and which books I think more people should read. But I’ll try to think of something new. The thing is, every book has it’s fans and critics. I’ve seen many a reader or blogger who doesn’t like Lord of the Rings, … Continue reading

Day 28 – Favourite title(s)

I’m a huge sucker for books with a) long titles that are really interesting or b) one word titles. In category A, I love titles like “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time”, “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell” and “The City of Dreaming Books”. These are all books I’ve picked up because their … Continue reading

Day 27 – The most surprising plot twist or ending

I can’t answer this. I’m totally prepared to do a cop-out and say that it’s the same book that I had for yesterday’s post. The thing is I’m not surprised by many things anymore. It could be because I haven’t picked up books with major plot twists or unexpected endings. Or it could be because … Continue reading

Day 26 – A book that changed your opinion about something

Today’s topic is the easiest one so far. Ever since I saw this particular topic there has only been one book that consistently pops up in my mind.   I read Animal Farm a long time ago, it was a birthday gift from my dad. It had cool illustrations and was surprisingly easy to understand … Continue reading

Day 25 – A character who you can relate to the most

Considering that I barely have a favourite character, I think it’s quite plausible to expect that I don’t really relate to any character at present. Perhaps this is due to a lot of the books I read being heavily fantastical, but even in terms of character I haven’t found a character that’s similar to me. … Continue reading

Day 24 – A book that you wish more people would’ve read

There are a great many books that I wish more people would read. A lot of them fall into the category of long classics. I still hold onto the firm belief that a lot of the older classics were just written and crafted better. I know that’s not entirely true, but a lot of books … Continue reading

Day 23 – A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t

There are a few books I’ve started and would like to finish, like Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern as well as Sophie’s world by Jostein Gaarder. I’ve read a chapter or two from both, but haven’t had the time to finish them. But the book that I’ve wanted to read for a really long time would have to … Continue reading

Day 22 – Favourite book you own

Without a doubt, it’s the book that I’ve also read the most often and flipped through time and time again. This is the actual cover with illustration by John Howe. Also I actually read through the appendix and loved following through the journey of the hobbits and the rest of the fellowship on the map. … Continue reading
