IMG_20150728_144203Let me grab my mug first, please. Okay so let’s follow my ritual… cover the mug with one hand… shake the mug violently… throw the chits on the floor… close the eyes… breathe… feel the chits… pick one up… unfold it… open your eyes and read after letting out the breath that you have been holding of course!

 

The second book I got is… drumrolls please… Deception point by Dan Brown. πŸ˜€ Β 

Β I haven’t read a Dan Brown yet so this book made it on my list and I actually wasn’t hoping for it but if not for this I wouldn’t have probably picked it up even by the end of the year. (I sometimes possess the quality of shamelessness. πŸ˜› I should have read it, list or no list, right? )

Let me cross out the block first. πŸ˜›

There, done! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

To my dismay, I didn’t read after completing The Little Prince on August 1st and then yesterday, august 2nd was also not utilized completely, I ended up reading only 100 pages. :/ But that’s okay, this is my 2nd book for this month and the month has just started so I won’t be hard on myself. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

What are you guys reading and has any of you participated in this book-a-thon?Β

Book 1 | August Bingo Book-a-thon!

IMG_20150728_144120

Time to reveal the first book I got for reading this month. As you all know I am participating in my first Book-a-thon (if you don’t, then clickΒ hereΒ πŸ™‚ ) I was pretty much excited because I love surprises and this was surely going to be a pleasant one. ❀

IMG_20150728_143800Some of the books in this chart are the one’s that I wanted to read and some are the one’s that I
have been pushing back in my TBR pile. I got the first book from the latter.

But whatever, if they are on my TBR pile I have to read it someday so why not now?

Can you guess what I got? That’s ridiculous, you obviously can’t. πŸ˜› (Don’t worry, I couldn’t either. πŸ˜‰ )

 

IMG_20150728_144203First things first, I grabbed my mug and my tablet, to obviously click a picture. (Though the mug’s picture is from my yesterday’s post. πŸ˜› )

After throwing the chits on the floor (for some dramatic effect πŸ˜› ) I closed my eyes and picked a chit.

I didn’t even realize that I was holding my breath until I unfolded the chit.

 

And I got… drum rolls please… The Little Prince byΒ Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry. Β 

 

I know, I know, it’s Children’s literature and I should have read it way back but I didn’t. Don’t kill me please. πŸ˜› Anyways after those hectic 5 last reading days of July (you might know what I am talking about if you read my posts) this was just what I needed, a light and easy read. I sailed through it. I gave it 5/5 stars because why not? It is a literally good book. ❀

I crossed out the number 14 block and felt damn good! πŸ˜€ No exact reason for me behaving like a 5 year old. Maybe I will be able to answer it in my birthday post. Yes, this is my birthday month and I am planning on doing a pouring-the-heart-out post. Stay tuned for it! πŸ˜‰

After finishing the book, I decided that I should see what my next book is, it didn’t turn out what I was hoping for but hell, that’s the fun, right?

I started reading it but then decided that I should officially call it a day and just laze around internet watching my latest obsession of cake decorating videos because why not? I deserve a break after giving up sleep and food to complete my reading goal and I didn’t exactly have any goals for this month. πŸ˜€

You will get to know what book I got next tomorrow. Watch out. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

Days without Internet #2

Finally!Β 

So, after what seems like eternity, I am back to blogging. ( Who am I kidding? πŸ˜› It has just been 17 days since no internet and that too I posted 2 blogs during that period. πŸ˜› courtesy- my tablet and my friend’s computer. πŸ˜› )

How do I feel right now?

Exactly, I have no idea whether to feel good or bad. I mean when I don’t have the platform to put forth my thoughts, I have genius ideas and then you give me Internet, I will most probably waste my life browsing useless, irrelevant stuff and what’s more interesting is that… I convince myself that I am not wasting my precious time, the time that is not going to come back; I am gaining knowledge, it might seem useless at this point but can save my life in the future, you just never know. (Yea, get me to give excuses for the things I do, my brain will work overdrive πŸ˜› )

I need to stop making excuses and gear up! There are people out there learning to defuse bombs on the internet and then there’s me still trying to figure out a way to get the chips before the advertisement ends and the video begins to play.

It’s not that I always do NOTHING useful but it’s pretty much USELESS though. Let’s just say, time decides to just skip a decade by the time I surf ten videos unrelated to the topic I wanted to…

I just have to figure out my day better. As you all already know, I don’t work well with schedules, if you don’t… then you are lazier than me.Β Schedules aren’t for me.Β I am already behind on my first ever TBR schedule. (See the TBR list here)Β 7 books from the list to be read in a week. That’s going to be a lot of reading for the week.

That’s pretty much what I will be doing this week. πŸ˜€ Trying to justify at least one schedule and my first TBR list for a certain month. Sigh!

Days without Internet!

So, no internet for me for some days. How does that make me feel? Well, not so hopeless.

The only thing I feel helpless about is keeping up with my blog. It’s been 6 days since I last posted and when I don’t have means to post my thoughts I get so many great ideas and when I sit down to type- my brain decides to slip into a coma! Ideas? What are ideas, I can’t even hear you!

And when that happens this is what I think…

I probably will be doing much with my days without internet than I would’ve done with internet. I just hope that I do. πŸ˜€

I will try to read more and maybe think about exercising because my bones are turning brittle with all the lying on the bed and reading stuff, one snap and I will break into pieces… Sigh!
