If there was one thing that I looked forward to while travelling by bus to college, it was reading books during the travel time. Whenever I used to read an unputdownable novel when travelling by bus in the morning, during the day, the only thought in my mind would be when I can I continue reading the book. 🙂 During breaks between classes, whenever the lecturer gave a free period, during lunch or even when the lecturer pauses for a few minutes, my hands would instantly go for the book and even if it meant I would get the time to read just a few lines, I never missed the opportunity to continue reading the novel. 🙂 I did the same thing in school too ever since my class 7! I used to manage my time efficiently between reading novels and attending classes. 😛 But, things changed when I was in the latter part of my third year. The number of books that I read while travelling by bus reduced and I started sleeping in the bus. 🙁 Earlier I used to hate sleeping in bus. Though I did read a few books in bus even during the final year of my college and during the past one year of my work, I never really read it with as much enthusiasm as earlier. Besides, the number of books that I read in the last 2 years is very less compared to earlier. I hardly read 15 books in the past 2 years!! 🙁 I would partially blame my addiction to reading blogs for this!
But in the past few weeks, I have regained my passion for reading books while travelling. 😀 Read ‘Sense and Sensibility’ first. Then, read Michael Crichton’s ‘State of Fear’. Currently reading Robin Cook’s ‘Marker’. But unlike school and college, I don’t get to read the book during breaks or lunch these days and now there are no teachers to give me free periods. 😛 I have to wait till I get into the bus in the evening to continue reading the book. 🙁 Anyway, I am hoping I don’t ever lose this passion again and wait for long to rediscover it! 🙂
P.S.: Before somebody points it out, let me say it myself. I know I have used a lot of ‘yellow dots’, read smileys in this post. 😉
