Last Thursday I got a notice from the post office that I have a parcel to collect from their office. So the next day, Friday, I went over to get it.
Here’s what I got in the mail.
I cannot wait to start reading it and then make a review. I’ve read some parts of it and it feels like it’s a gripping story, I guess I’m going to find out soon.
It’s so awesome to get books as a gift. I’ve always been a bookworm and I absolutely just love reading! Don’t underestimate the power of books, though we live in a technology driven world today, nothing can replace the knowledge one can learn from books. I learned more about life from books than my own parents. Just because they were too busy with their life dramas. I read my first novel at age 7, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. It was my aunt’s book that I never returned and she never looked for it, so… Reading books helped me cope with the reality of how tragic my life has become at such a young age, and I guess I don’t mind that my parents split after all, because indirectly, it’s one of the reasons why I’m so smart.
Books are truly informational, whether you’re reading fiction or auto biographies or history or factual books, you learn about life and people and you get to expand your vocabulary in the process. I wasn’t always so wordy. I learned a lot of words from reading a lot of books and when I don’t understand a word I look it up on the dictionary, that’s how I learned words like hornswoggle, chutzpa (kootzpa) and lecherous. These are some of my favorite words that I have come across books and I love that they sound so weird and yet their meanings are really simple. Curious? Look it up! It’s fun that way. Let me know which of these 3 words you like best.
