How many of you have heard of BookCrossing before? And how many of you actually participate or have participated in BookCrossing?
The term contemporary fiction tells readers to expect stories set in modern times. Yet modernity is relative because it’s about the now and as we all know, the now today becomes yesterday tomorrow.
For once I’m not entirely sure if my dislike for the book purely stems from the book itself or from the expectations that arose prior to reading the book because a very popular author wrote this. An Abundance of Katherines is the first full-length novel of John Green that I got my hands on. The first sentence had me totally hooked but no single sentence can sustain a whole book. No matter how good that sentence is. Despite my growing reservations, I decided to continue reading, even staying up till 3 a.m. one night just to complete it. Sleep would’ve been time better spent on my part.
For the past couple of weeks I was away on vacation with my family, so my life’s been fairly quiet. I enjoyed my time sleeping, doing nothing much besides soaking up the sun’s rays.
All targets are set for the new year, there are goals to be met, and most importantly, there are books upon books to be read!
