Day 23: A Book You Wanted But You Haven’t Read So Far

Well, that is a really big title and the same would be my list of such books (in no particular order):

1. The Grapes of Wrath (I am stuck on Pg.50 or somewhere around)

2. The Book Thief

3. Much Ado About Nothing (well it is a drama, still I am sharing it because I discontinued to read it somewhere around in Act II. I want to complete it.)

4. The Bourne Supremacy (I read the first book and started the second one but I got bored after reading the first two chapters)

5. The Divine Comedy

6. The God of Small Things

There are many others but it is better if I end the list here.

It is just that if I start reading a book and get disturbed in the first few pages, I just abruptly stop reading it anymore. And it lies waiting for me so that I could find it once again. There are many books I couldn’t read because I found the language to be the main hindrance. Yes, I find it difficult to feel the book if I am not comfortable with the language. Wuthering Heights is a book I tried to read repeatedly but nothing was making sense to me.

I am more of a modernist when it comes to books. I would rather read a good new novel rather than devoting my time to a classic I can’t enjoy. I am myself reading Jane Eyre right now and I am quite enjoying it but not without a little frustration over the long introspective paragraphs or the dialogues which get sometimes quite tedious to read. But it is not disturbing me to an extent that I would stop reading it.

In simple words, we must read what we enjoy or something we find would enrich our minds and souls in some way. Have a good time and happy reading! Read anything… but just read and keep on reading.

And at last something for you to think about:

  1. For what it’s worth, I really enjoyed The Bourne Identity, but felt the rest of the trilogy didn’t live up to the first book. (And I haven’t read any of the continuation by the new author.)
