8 random (but bookish) things

1. I like to read the book before watching the movie, even though I know I’ll hate the movie that way.

2. I love happy endings over sad endings. But that doesn’t mean I’ll take any old cheesy happy ending. It has to be happy and believable.

3. Sometimes I can’t resist. I sneak a peek at the last page. Sometimes I’m too nosy for my own good and spoil the fun in reading the book. Sometimes fortunately the last page doesn’t reveal much. The author is probably writing with readers like me in mind. 😛

4. I’m a bit ashamed if I were to go out with a chick lit book in my hands. So I always hold the book with the cover facing my body.

5. As a child, I devoured Enid Blytons my parents bought me from garage sales. I particularly recall enjoying The Faraway Tree, The Wishing Chair and the Amelia Jane books with fondness. I also loved this Enid Blyton book called The Three Brownies. I can’t find it anywhere now, not even online shopping!

6. I also enjoyed reading this Singaporean series called The Bookworm Gang. Nope, nothing much to do with bookworms; it’s a group of young schoolchildren with different personalities and the adventures they get up to in Singapore.

7. I’d read any book if it was hyped enough, so I can show off and say I read it. Hah!

8. I’m afraid of losing my sight in the future. Right now my spectacles prescription power is very high. If I go blind one day, how will I read? (Braille books are difficult to come by and quite unaffordable as such in Malaysia.)
