I’m not just a bookworm, I’m a book hoarder! Bitter-sweet confession, I guess.
I used to stay in our university library during college days just to munch and munch of mind food. Actually, it’s a habit formed since rainbow-hued elementary and high school days. I would borrow books in maximum number and often times, I would keep them at home til I notice some are due or even passed due already. I would pay penalty charges, only to find myself borrowing more books that I like, even twice, thrice, til I devour the last page. Reading has been part of my daily life since I learned how to read.
When friends and acquaintances give me books or lend me books, I’m overwhelmed and overjoyed! I can even spend hours and even a day, feasting on books. Every trip to book sale, I would purchase two-three books, depending on my budget. But I seldom read novels nowadays. Aside from this trilogy, I once got hooked in another genre of trilogy, but realized lately that it doesn’t suit my appetite anymore.
Not all novels are superficial and superfluous, some are worth reading; but I prefer to read and contemplate more on inspirational and spiritual books. Those are books that fill the need of the soul. It so happened, I don’t have latest pictures of my current books. But everyday, reading the Bible is a fundamental part of my everyday living
My entry for this week’s theme showcases an everyday habit: reading. I’m still a book hoarder sometimes, but I’m a full-blooded bookworm oftentimes!
