So, one day, I thought I would just read two tiny books and do nothing else. One Book with my morning tea and the other one along with my evening cappuccino. While the tea and coffee supped inside, my mind made me wonder how these books were written to so much precision. Crispy and Crunchy.
Birthday Girl by Murakami kept me so hooked and I sat there pondering what the Birthday wished.
This quote made me submerge on a sea of thoughts.
“No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves,”
Finally, it took a long time to digest the fact that this book is an abstract. Like an abstract art- your mind wanders. You read the way you want to see. That’s the magic of Murakami’s Writing. It’s the finest way for me to introduce to a new favorite author!
On the other hand, you don’t have to dwell much on The Blue Umbrella by Ruskin Bond. It’s a classic- a well-known classic on how people become better and prudent.
Apparently, it’s a children’s book but it has a great moral attached. Make sure your kids read it! Pass it on to as many kids possible!
One tip before I wind off, if you want to learn your next favorite author- try reading a short story first!
