To Read is to Dream. . .

Aaaah! Christmas break is now just around the corner. For a bookworm and lover of Tolkenish readings like me, this is the season to sit back, sip up some coffee and pick up some books on my To Read list. Of course I also have my reading list of scientific papers which I need and want to look into but that is another story I suppose. There is time for everything under the sun, bids King Solomon. ^__^

In my reading list, I have the following:

  • Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud – I have already covered some five chapters or more as I remember. I got stuck when busyness in the lab and office got hold of me. I haven’t read J. Stroud’s Bartimaeus Trilogy but I am giving this a shot. I am happy so far about how the story is going.
  • The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien – I have already finished reading the book and as expected Tolkien never ceases to amaze me. I would love to read it again after watching The Hobbit in the cinema. I am glad that my imagination of the dwarves and the dragon basking in the pile of gold fits well the depiction of the characters in the movie.
  • The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien – I have not finished reading this one again due to busyness. Tolkien has really wonderfully made a rich fantasy in his writings about Middle Earth and his characters that an imaginative person like me couldn’t help but to daydream.
  • The Legacy, Book VII of The Legend of Drizzt series by R. A. Salvatore – I have to postpone this one because I want to read the previous six books of this series first so I can trace citations to the other six books when reading it. So the goal now is to find a bargain of the other books! I hope I won’t get tempted to get a copy in Fullybooked. Grrrr.

These are just some of the books which I would like to enjoy reading during any of my free time. Also, I hope to have time to make reviews of these readings to record my reading experiences and to give others a viewpoint before reading them.

This Christmas, on top of my wish list is.. time. I wish to have time for my self and time to enjoy my books. ^__^

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Excelsior! Jeff.
