The first book that I’ve read was Nightfall, a sci-fi book by Isaac Asimov, in 2nd year high school. It was one of the first books I’ve borrowed from Uncle John. It was my first choice because I was fascinated with the summary that says about a planet having six suns and thus having no night time. Imagine that! I was pretty hooked in reading ever since. Most of the books I read were detective/assassin genre by Jack Higgins. Then I also chanced upon Sidney Sheldon, Nicolas Sparks and CS Lewis’ works. I also read inspirational or self-help books by OG Mandino, Mitch Albom and a bunch of others as well.
My most memorable read was Sherlock Holmes during the Christmas break of 2nd year college. I had a good time reading it that I was able to finish 1, 400 pages in less than a week. I don’t think it was possible since I usually finish a 300-page book in 3 days at that time.
I hope I can get back to a reading groove again. I miss the feeling of being drawn to a new world, of relearning or learning new things and just setting a wandering mind off again.
