When I started running in 2013, I wasn't listening to any music whenever I headed out to pound the pavement. At first it was because I got dizzy wearing earphones, and then I was training myself to pay more attention to my body so music was a no-go. Can you imagine running a marathon for a few hours without music? I could.
Books are a curious mind’s best friend. If you’re notoriously curious as I am, you won’t be able to settle for one book only. Sometimes you’d like to stock up on several books on the same topic or pick up another book, while in the middle of one, to match your mood. If your To Read list is growing ten-folds by the day, you are not alone. Mine sure feels that way.
I have loved books for as long as I can remember, my earliest memories included books in all their shapes, forms, and sizes. For years I read one book at a time. I liked to savour them and re-read them until I have memorised all the nooks and crannies of the plot and the dialogue. There’s nothing wrong with that and I still do it sometimes but I realised there are so many more books out there I have yet to read and explore and they are growing in number.
