I don’t categorize myself as a voracious reader. I try to limit my reading dosage as I had proved early on that I have an addiction to reading which could take over my life forever and ever. But reading is definitely a part of my daily routine.
Currently, I am reading ‘The Forty Rules of Love: A Novel of Rumi’ by Elif Shafak. This is my first read by Elif Shafak and I am thoroughly enjoying this book.
Also, I am proud to say as much as I love reading this book, I haven’t let it take over my life.
Yesterday when I was immersed in the pages of The Forty Rules of Love, Kanna came to me and announced that he thinks I should read a book called ‘Nerd No More‘. He read this book recently as part of their school curriculum and in his opinion, I should too because it will help me.
He continued that Nerd No More is a light read from the perspective of a 6th grader; it’s funny and definitely a must read for me.
Listening to his gyan, I found it my duty to brag about my current read and proceeded to do so. I ended my case by adding that this book is based on the stories that are taking place in two different centuries – one in the 13th century another in the 21st century and is a delightful read.
Kanna replied, “You always read serious books. That’s why I think you should read Nerd No More. It will show you a different perspective. It will make you laugh.”
I agreed to read the said book. The kid thinks that his mom needs to laugh a little. Who am I to deny that!
Guess what’s going to be my next read?!
