If there is one thing I miss doing, its reading! Its been eight months in this country, new school, Masters and I just have not read a book all these months. And I am not talking about Thomas Cormen, Tanenbaum and the Eastern Economic Editions.
This is not me. I consider reading to be the most pleasure filled experience one can have. I’ll be engrossed inside a few hundred pages if given a choice. Only yesterday my roommate asked me what is your ideal job? What do you consider to be the most enjoyable work for you? I was so tempted to say it would have to be something to do with reading or writing. I miss Crichton, Wodehouse, Rand, Rowling, Tolkien. I don’t mind including Enid Blyton also. And Gregory David Roberts. And Yann Martel. Yeah, even one book wonders(so far). I could only carry a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird on the flight last July owing to baggage issues. And my roommate has a copy of Deathly Hallows under his table. The only “reading” I do these days are Daily Dilbert and Calvin & Hobbes on my desktop. A book, a drink, a cozy window side. And rains. You understand what I am talking about? Yeah, Arjun will understand. And from what little I know, she would.
I invite you to blame it on my bad time management skills. Maybe I should pick a book instead of blogging about it. Or instead of watching Youtube. But it won’t stop me from saying it. I just haven’t found the time.
