We all love reading, either book of different genre, magazines, newspapers, blogs (soft copy/hard copy) etc etc…thus there are many mediums for continuing our habit of reading. Today I would like to ask my dear friends about sharing one such book which they have read the most number of times so far…Would you recommend that book to your friends? If so why? Since I am asking question, I am also supposed to answer my own question for my friends.
Here is my answer:
I have to admit that the highest score for a repeated book reading in my life goes to TWILIGHT part 1. I know my answer is the topmost SPOILER for any pseudo intellect image if i ever held in front of you guys 🙂 But this is the truth.
I have read it 22 times and rest 3 books in the series minimum 4 times. I don’t mind admitting the fact that this book might not stand anywhere near any of the classic book lovers passion for reading any Jane Austen or Dickens work. I totally agree with your tastes.
But I read the book for its maximum time during 2008-2010 and the 22nd time in 2015 if my memory is right. I happen to get this book from street shop which sold pirated books on my way back to university from home. It was just 100 rupees.
Since I don’t have the habit of reading any book immediately after having them, this book too had to wait few more weeks before I began. I was at the age of 22 and obviously the age matters the thought processes & imaginations (you know what I meant 🙂 ). This resulted in reading the book several times and recommending it for many of the same age group. My addiction to this book put me in such a situation where my friends had to literally hide the book, especially during exam times. I had almost by hearted the statements from it (I was damn blindly crazy about it ).
After the realization of this book being part of the series, I was counting days for the release of second one and this continued till the last one. I was lucky for getting the original books, gifted by my elder brother 🙂 In between the movie was released but as usual it was a major disappointment (for any book lovers to watch the adaptation on screen). One thing I really liked about the movie is the song “A Thousand years” sang by Christiana Perri. This is one of my all-time favorite songs.
By the time I decided to have my 22nd reading the first pirated copy of twilight had become the most endangered book in my whole collection and over the years my thought processes also changed. I became curious why I read a paranormal fiction for those many times. I read it once again and didn’t get that much enthusiasm, but I had to accept that this one book had the ability to make the adolescent soul of mine — to continue reading 🙂
Without images, none of my posts seem complete for me, here I am adding some of the fun filled images related to TWILIGHT…
If you haven’t tried this series, you can give a blind try. I can’t assure that this will be liked by all but it is fun to try some books deliberately even when we know that our reading genre is bit more intellect than this 🙂 Friends, do let me know answers for my questions and help me deal with my curiosity 🙂
Wish you all a very good day and dedicating this beautiful song for all my dear friends
A THOUSAND YEARS… (I hope this song will definitely add some sparkles of love in everyones heart)
