Free Time to Read
Posted on: 13th of July 2008 | Under: Geek Talk

I’ve had quite a lot of free time lately. Free time to rest. Free time to wander around the city. Free time to make some art. And free time to be able to sit down and read.

In a span of two and a half weeks, I’ve managed to read two books, and even started on a third:


For One More Day by Mitch Albom: Read.
Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon: Read.
Diary by Chuck Palahniuk: Currently reading.

I’m planning to buy Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert once I’m done with my third book. =)

What book are you reading?

    Currently reading “First Among the Sequels” by Jasper Fforde. :)

    I also want to read “Eat, Pray, Love” because of the fact that it mentions Bali! And guess where I recently came from? =P

    I just finished “Anansi Boys” by Neil Gaiman, a book that I had been planning to read for YEARS. I am going to start “We Need to Talk About Kevin” soon, but not before tackling two classics, “Return of the Native” (because my mom told me it’s good) and the 1818 text of one of my favourites, “Frankenstein”.

    By the way, are you into used books? There’s an awesome used book store in the Selegie area in a little mall called Parklane. =) I got my classics there for 4 bucks each. Just thought I’d give you a tip! Haha! =D

    See you tomorrow!

    I wish I had some free time to read :/
    currently re-reading Tim Burton’s
    “The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy”.
    took me a long while to get this book (:

    I highly recommend Eat Pray Love! :) What did you think of Diary? That’s the only Palahniuk book I’ve read and I found it so disturbing, I haven’t picked up another book of his since.

    I’m currently reading Zadie Smith’s On Beauty.

    I missed it here!!! :) its been awhile! anyway, aside from the gazillions i read for school, i’m juggling The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory(a fave!!) and starting on The Road by Paul McCarthy.

    Anyway, I wish I have all the money and time in the world to live around books all the time. I’m in love with them :)

    I’m happy that you and Kuya Jr and finally together again!

    Congrats for the successful shift to Singapore and a belated pat on the back for the Moleskine exhibition, too!

    Gorgeous works you got there btw. Inspires me to start creating art again (apart from Photography that is.)

    Also, I dropped by to tell you that you can delete my blog from your links na. :d I’ve decided to close it since I no longer update anyway. :)

  7. Nice blog, i have added it to my favourites, greetings

    @Tina: Will try to check out that book. =)

    @id: I just started on Eat Pray Love… and it already has some tidbits on Bali… can’t wait for the actual chapter dedicated for it. =) hehe! I want to drop by Parklane this week. Maybe I’ll find a nice book for a reasonable price too. =)

    @Nadine: I am savoring my free time by reading as much as I can, because I know it’ll be harder when I start working again.

    @Katia: I just started on Eat Pray Love and I’m loving it. =) I agree, Diary was quite dark and disturbing. I didn’t enjoy the extreme angst in the first part of the book, but it became quite interesting towards the middle (or when she started painting, at least). And, Zadie Smith’s On Beauty is currently on my book wishlist. =)

    @Toni: I’d love to be able to own every book in the world too! hehe! And then maybe have all the time in the world to read them. haha! Thanks, dear! We’re happy too. =)

    @Dan: Not blogging anymore? Too bad! Hope to bump into in Singapore sometime. hehe! Thanks!

    Oooh, if you’re going to start reading Jasper Fforde, get “The Eyre Affair” first, just so you will understand everything happening in Thursday Next’s world. :D Enjoy!
