My Favourite Books and Readings in 2009
I decided at the beginning of 2009, that I won't let that year pass without finishing at least 30 books, and hell why not, or that was my plan back last January, but I found out at the end of December that I couldn't make it sorrowfully!
I've just finished my 12th book and it was Stephen King's creepy (Duma Key). It took me three months just to finish this particular one with its 800 pages that's full of frightening and breath taking details that gave me a lot of goosebumps for so many nights.
Throughout the whole year I've gotten to finish those 12 books in addition to my regular full-time work back then, my all-time full-time housework, and going out for shopping, dining, visiting friends and relatives, but still that won't make it up for me though!
I'll make it one of my top priorities this year that InshaAllah I'll finish at least 30 books by the end of 2010.
Now that I've quit my full-time job, I've got no excuse!
It always feels good to make yourself a good ambiance while reading, not including the toilet of course, but in winter it's always good to have a comfy couch or bed, a heavy soft blanket, along with a herbal hot drink or ur favorite cup of Hot chocolate.
I'll leave you with the Novels and Books I finished, thanks God, this year,
1- The Lodging House AKA (Wekalet Atteya) by Khairy Shalaby.
2- Utopia by Ahmed Khaled Tawfik.
3- Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.
4- New Moon by Stephanie Meyer.
5 - The Big Four by Agatha Christie.
6- The Spot of Light AKA (Noqtet Al Noor) by Bahaa Taher.
7- The fate of a cockroach AKA (Maseer Sorsar) by Tawfik Al Hakim.
8- The Companions of the Cave AKA (Ahl El-Kahf) by Tawfik Al Hakim.
9- Angels and Demons by Dan Brown.
10- The Beggar AKA (Al Shahath) by Naguib Mahfouz.
11-Taxi by Khaled El Khamisy.
12- Duma Key by Stephen King.
I know I get to watch movies more than I read books, but that somehow makes a balance.
So Now I'm preparing the new list of books in 2010, will make a budget, then head to my favourite shopping destinations ever...bookstores.. so wish me luck:)
