This week's question:


Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you?

I would always try to find new and interesting books to read through magazines, friends, teachers and also visiting bookstores and libraries.

What about you? Where did you find out about new books?

The urge to alphabetize my books


Well, today I feel like musing about the urge to alphabetize my books.

I don’t know if you have the same obsession, but I feel like I must alphabetize my books. I alphabetize by author’s last name and then for the same author, I alphabetize by title.

Last month my boyfriend (whom I share my apartment) decided to dust my books. So they ended up all out of order. Big drama! I didn’t rest until I alphabetize them again. And after I finished I stood there for a while enjoying the work I’d done.

So, do you also feel an same urge or alphabetize your books or arrange them in any other way?

This week's question:


Are you also a writer and what genre or did you ever consider writing?

When I was a teenager I started writing several books and short stories and I even won one short story award in a magazine and I also got another short story published in a local newspaper. My goal then was to be a writer.

Then I went to college and from that moment on I never wrote fiction again. The desire to become a writer is still here and one of the reasons I started blogging was to get back to writing. But for now, I haven't started writing anything yet. Maybe someday I'll start writing again...

What about you? Do you want to become a writer?

Who’s afraid of Ulysses?

Ulysses by James Joyce


A few years ago when I was in college I heard about Ulysses for the first time. A few teachers recommended the book and told us that it was THE BOOK. They described Ulysses as masterpiece, very difficult to read and accessible only to some higher minds.

For years I thought about reading the book, but never had the courage. Why? Well, because I’m afraid I won’t even be able to reach the last page, or even if I do I’m afraid I won’t get it, that it might be too erudite for me.

But, a few months ago, I found a paperback copy of Ulysses at a bookstore at a ridiculous low price. So, I’ve decided to buy it.

Have I read it? No, I haven’t. Ulysses is comfortably placed on my bookshelf, waiting for me to be brave enough to grab it and start reading the first page.

So, will the book remain on my bookshelf or will I read it? Well, I don't know. I was determined to read Ulysses  on my holidays. But My holidays have passed and I read other books instead. So, Ulysses is still on my bookshelf waiting to be read.

What about you? Are there any books that scare you and that you avoid reading? Have you read Ulysses?

The most boring book I ever read

The most boring book I ever read

I’m a huge fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I loved One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. That being said, I must confess that The Autumn of the Patriarch is the most boring book I’ve ever read.

The book tells the story a South American dictator and his slow decay. The books starts off with long chapters, one page sentences, almost no paragraphs, and then towards the end the chapters and sentences become longer and longer until the reader is completely exhausted. I kept hoping the dictator would die soon, but he didn’t. His decay seems to go on forever and ever until it becomes unbearable. Then he finally dies.

I guess that’s what Garcia Marquez intended, to take the insupportableness and longevity of dictatorships into the book. But, it’s still a boring book in my opinion.
