A week full of reading

– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone – Night – A little History of the World

The day that I got out of the school after I finished my final exams I already knew my plans. And that was to read. And read. And read.
I had and still have a long list of books that I should read this winter. In the summer whenever I picked up a book then after a few minutes of glancing at it I put it back immediately down.
Because probably that book would have overloaded my days with school homework.

But now I have lots of time to fill, as I said before. And my passion for stories is never-ending.

So after I got home I started finding all those books from around my room (messy) that I had longed to read for a long time. For you to imagine how much this made me peaceful, it is like if I sat on a fire and then suddenly dropped myself on pool full of ice. Exactly like that.

So in a week that I was free I read 3 long books. I have to note one thing here. I had started each of them sometime in the past but because I had no time or was overloaded with school I just quit reading them at that time. So opening them once again was a pleasure.

Here is a list of each of them :

– A little History of the World by Ernest H. Gombrich : This book tells you the world history from the earliest days of mankind till the WWII. I think everyone should read this book to understand the past. Also this is the easiest it could get to understand the history.

– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone  by J. K. Rowling:  Ah, my favourite one. I started this book several times in the past. But finally I read it in 2 days. This is a classic. After reading this, one can imagine how much wonderful a writer J. K Rolling is. I recommend this one very much too.

-Night by Elie Wiesel : Just finished today. This book tells the amazing story of a father and son through the WWII in German concentration camps. Amazing read, so much that I want to read it again.

I have already started reading another book too. It is the Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.

If I keep going at this pace then I will probably read a dozen of books by the end of the winter.

Wish me luck!

  1. Wow! That is a lot of reading done in a week. You must know that most Americans only read 1 book in a year and yet you have read 3 books in week! How old are you? And how did you learn English? This is fascinating!
    Read the Alchemist if you have it.

    • Thank you for your compliments. I learned English by myself. I read short story books and I watched a lot of cartoon when I was young. Currently I am 16 years old.
      Also that is an amazing fact that most Americans read only 1 book a year. Yeah I have the “Alchemist”. It is on my reading list.

      Any other book that you have to suggest?

      • That is quite a story. Well told. I find your story totally unique. That is how all great books are, they all have a great story. Maybe one day you should write a book.
        The next I would be suggesting for your next reading would be The Hobbit. Happy Reading 🙂
