Current interest: Karen Kingsbury

As I realize yesterday, that I haven't read a book for a long time, I decide to drop by at Kinokuniya Bookstore in KLCC last night! And I have bought 3 books. I wanted to buy more, but I have to refrain myself from spoiling myself too much! I have to admit, when I was in college, I would buy the books that I wanted without doing much of thinking. But now as I am "working adult", I got to plan, so I won't end up empty pocket by end of the month. And I'm telling you, I miss those days where I don't have to plan.

The three books that I bought are; Karen Kingsbury-Found (My favourate!), Star People and the Understudy.. by two different author that I don't remember. I was about to buy Sophie Kinsella's new release title "Shopaholic & Baby", but it seem soo boring these days. If you followed the sequence of her books, you know what you're expecting. If you know what I mean. So, I have to let go or just put on hold until I've finish with these there.

Karen Kingsbury books are really heart touching stories. I know that because I read her book title "Return" before. Immanuel aka dalantau kindly lend the book to me although I know my sister Eliz have one which I doubt she ever read it.

I remember I had weep many times along the journey of "return" as I felt I was really in that stories itself. Would you classified me as an emotional kinda guy? coz, I have been assumed of that by some. And you know what? I don't care what women wants (WWW 8TV show)! ;-> the stories are beautifully written... Man, I'm sooo Anne of green Gables! man... I love Anne!

As I browse thru the Humor section, I found a book by Malaysian Author, Lydia Teh. Although I didn't buy her book, I manage to find her blog address, where I can read more about her stuff before I decide to include her's into my collection. Her Blog is called Life's Like That and it has a beautiful instrumental music playing on the page. me like it.

You know something weird and funny? the first sentence she (Lydia Teh) writes is "I hate to write and I love to write." thats contradiction meaning can be said in one sentence. Is that right? And the other day, when I was YM-ing with May May(Peeves), she said something like.. "I know you, but I don't know you." and as I said to her, thats sentences are a bit confusing but I kinda understand her. weird huh? And I remember someone in the office says that.." ...Its complicated, but not that complicated.." could that means.. medium complication? go figure!

Hi Musa, thanks for the link to my blog. If you're interested to read an excerpt of Honk! If You're Malaysian, here's one that a reader has kindly typed out and posted on a forum :

Hey, you like Anne of Green Gables. A very heartwarming series.

Hi Lydia,

Wow, how on earth did you found me out? must be an IT whiz too! Yay! so multi -talented Author!

Yes, I love Anne of Green Gables so much... I know it sounds sooo childish and sassy. But who care? right? I've watched the 1st Trilogy of the series. Never read the book yet. I just found out its in the Children Section books..

Thanks for the link, but it directed me to the Chevrolet Club Malaysia..hemmm

Hey, Thank you soo much for writing a comment here.. very much appreciated.

All the best meeting those deadlines!

Musa, yes the excerpt appears in Chevrolet Club. Oh dear, I just pasted the link and the article didn't appear. Never mind, I'll email it to you instead.

Actually, no need to be IT whiz to locate you. The link appears in my Wordpress Dashboard (Wordpress is quite cool this way - all links to mine are shown). And if that fails, there's always google :)

Thanks for the best wishes.
