Where Has My Reading Habit Gone To?
When I was in Standard 6, I used to read a lot. I can finish a fiction within a week and whenever there is time between classes, I will bring out the book from under my desk and read. It was a time when I was very engaged to reading.During to those days I read Moby Dick, Around The World in Eighty Days, Last of The Mohicans, Tom Sawyer, Enid Blyton’s Secret Seven series and many more.
I don’t know why the reading habit faded out when i go to secondary school. Reading fictions has declined. from the 70s till now, I think I can count the number of books that I finish reading. The latest I finish reading within two weeks is a book about the fate of our football team trying to make it to the world cup.
With the era of the internet, I jumped onto the net and got strangled in the blogging world. There are thousands of blogs that I surfed and none but a few that I read from the first line to the last. Sometimes I am surprised with myself as to why that reading habit that I catch during my preteen years did not continue to this day.
As I said there are one or two blog that I read from the first line to the last, but not every posting though. I have just finished reading Tomothy Tiahs posting Up In The Air
