RE: Way to Unwind for a Tiresome day

in #challenge2 years ago

I lost my track on you. So sorry. When I am picking on my routine on steemit I usually visit the blogs of my favorite writers here.
And then I get in touch. As you paused for a while I lost on my routine checking out on you. Hopefully you will write again and please, come and remind me to visit you.

So, here my list which also matches yours:

  • All Harry Potters & Lord of the rings :)
  • Foucault's Pendulum from Umberto Eco
  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance from Robert M. Pirsig (that one I recommend highly)
  • Iron John: A Book About Men from Robert Bly (such a good book!)
  • Eve's Diary from Mark Twain (short one!)
  • Neuromancer from William Gibson
  • Siddharta from Hermann Hesse
  • God of Impertinence from Sten Nadolny (as well as "The Discovery of Slowness")
  • The Old Man and Mr. Smith from Peter Ustinov

All of them are worth reading.
I guess I must try Haruki Murakami as I hear this name being mentioned a lot of times.

Thank you for your list. I hope you will have time to red Pirsig. It's really worth it.


I'm not sure if I'm back yet or just stopped by, I'm so glad whenever I find a comment from you in one of my posts!!

Happy new year, by the way :) I was out of the country to visit family and have been full of work since I got back, I have also finished a short novel and I'm using every bit of free time I have to give it the final touches.

The reason I'm not a constant steemit user is because puting articles in a nice format is greatly frustrating!!!

I cant promise I will read all your former posts although I would love to, but I'll try and catch up with your work as much as I can!

As for the booklist, Zen and Motorcycle Maintenance and the Discovery of Slowness I promise to find and read. I got a kobo ereader for Christmas and it has made my reading a lot easier!!! I've read siddharta and I think Neuromancer is in a box somewhere in my living room.

Murakami is sure to drive you into a world of magic :) I hope you try it!
