Books. Passion. Nostalgia.

Books. The four titles you can see I brought them out of the storage and I plan to reread them.

I didn’t know renewing my passion would feel this great.

I was looking for my paperback copy of Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger this morning. This classic has been my favorite since I first read it back in 2002. I’ve read it a hundred times, most especially during the lowest times of my life where angst and anger are pretty much the same. In the most weird way, this book – which is nothing near a romance of sort – has helped me get by and move on from previous heart breaks. But I can’t seem to find the book.

the Mother has weird ways of stashing away my items. She put some of my books in this very big water drum.

After not feeling well for exactly a week now, I figured it might do me good if I renew my passion for reading. The last novel I finished was from few months ago, The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. After that, I can’t seem to find any more time to read.

Yesterday I got Mitch Albom’s books – Tuesdays with Morrie and Have a Little Faith – from Powerbooks Trinoma. I have finished the former in one sitting, over breakfast this morning. Yes I just read Tuesdays with Morrie and I wished I read it before. What I think about the book deserves a separate post.

So during the recent days that I had series of deep contemplation, I figured what I needed to do: read more and write more. I’d like to be the artistic person that I was before, only I wish to do better this time.
