I am ecstatic, at last I was able to finish a certain book that I have actually started in September 2012.
Took me nearly 5 months to finish it. I think I blame it all on that it was translated into Arabic.
The day I saw the book at the book store; the title attracted me to it and I bought it.
Later when I read through 25% of it; I found out that it is originally in English, and that rendered my reading to a slow march.
I kept on imagining what she meant, and how it would have sounded in English. And is the Arabic version better and portrays the metaphors and symbolism better than the English one or not.
And so on.
But I did it! I finished it at last!
And I loved it!
It counts into my new year reading challenge 😀
It makes 1 out of 50.
50 here I come; I’ll make it to 50 books this year. I am sooooooooooooo determined this time 😀
I had to share this with you guys to see how many people pledged and how many books are pledged to be read.
Over 10 million BOOKS……. 10 million… very impressive
And 9 days into the new year and 48 challenges were already accomplished; I guess they had one book or two books or something 😀 😉
