Top 5 Books for the Year

I confess. I now join the "Top-Whatever-for-the-year" bandwagon. But it's fun. Sharing a couple of books (or literatures) I've read this year. You might want them on your collection too.

* How to Mend a Broken Heart by Nelson Dy. It's a hybrid of falling in love and picking yourself up "even" after. What's interesting about this book is that it was written by a man. It has numerous insights for those whose going through 'the' ordeal. Please do me a favor by not asking why I've read the book. But yes, this is a good one.

* Like the Flowing River by Paulo Coelho. A collection of short stories - Coelho's style. This literature brings up interesting topics like What life is all about? Brotherhood. Travelling. Enjoying the here and now. Personally, it encourages me to appreciate what I have now. No second thoughts about it.

* Holy Bible. With all due respect to other religions, this is my life book. I don't intend to fire a debate on this topic but personally, this is the reason why I am still sane now. Comfort. Respite. A tap on my shoulder. Rebuke if I need one. And let me share with you that I had this Bible since I was 12 years old. Yes! And the words below - these describe the very words that I want to tell Him over and over again.

* Cosmopolitan Magazines. Fashion File anyone? This is where all my fashion sensibilities came from. Though (again personally), I ripped all unwholesome articles on the mag. Not for any other reasons, it's just that some things are worthy to be looked at and for some, I believe they have their own proper place (and it's definitely not in the magazine on your bed side table). Other than this, career nook, weekend getaway ideas, fashion ideas - where to look at? Definitely at Cosmopolitan.

* Archie Comics. My first-ever English vice back in my 3rd grade years. Hehe. I grew up with Archie. But my heart sank knowing that Archie ended up with Veronica Lodge and not Betty Cooper! Wahh. You can read that by buying 'The Best of Archie' below. While writing this entry, I suddenly recalled how I eat my chocolates and slump in our sofa set and read Archie comics again and again. Hehe. Childhood days. Haaaa... -CMK

Let me give you one last reason why you should read a book: “No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” - Confucius
