BEDM - Day 11: Book Love


I love reading! Growing up, reading was like a getaway from reality. I've developed relationship with fictional characters that only bookworms can understand. Last summer, I signed up for Goodreads and bought an eReader... ever since getting an eReader, my reading has increased dramatically and I always recommend it getting it for anyone considering to get an Ereader. I still buy books and rent them but growing up with technology, I love reading from an eReader now.
If anyone is wonder, I had the Kobo Touch and Kobo Vox. I ended up switching over to a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, 7" because I enjoy reading magazines too. I sell eReaders so if you guys are ever considering one, I can give you a list of suggestions to find one that suited for you.
Behind the Beautiful Forevers written by Kathrine Boo is one of my favourite books I've ever read. It's a cultural studies book based on the slums of Mumbai. As a lover of India, I fell in love with this book after the first pages. Everything written there is so.. raw and real. It's based on three separate lives of people living in the slums. It's one of the best cultural studies books out there.
Right now I'm reading Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. I haven't figured if I like it or not but right I'm leaning on the positive side.
