It’s starting to become that time of the summer when a wave of boredom accompanies the wave of heat, and boy what a wave it is this year. Going out on weekends (or weekdays) just doesn’t sound like a good idea, heat strokes during the day from a that extremely thirsty sun, and short of breath during the night from the high humidity levels.
Unbearable, that’s what it is this year, and everyone will prefer lying down under the comfort of air conditioning. That’s exactly what I’ll be doing all summer right after I’m done with my finals (speaking of which, I shouldn’t be here), and so I’m trying to get set everything ready with the good viewing and reading material to cover me for at least one good month. Reading, is a great way to vent out in a hot summer day. Lye down somewhere and let the pages take you in, and paired with the boredom and you have a winner's recipe.
Those are some of the books that have been accumulating in my Amazon Wish List and my mini book-rack.
I had started reading Bill Clinton's autobiography book, and it was a very compelling read, but I was in the middle of reading something at the time, so I'm really looking forward to read it again. I wasn't the biggest fan of Hosseini's first book, but I know everyone's going to end up reading this one and I don't want to be left out of the party (tsk, peer pressure).
The school book syndrome has taken it's toll on me. Throughout the whole year so far I don't think I've read more than two books, paper reminded me of school work and I didn't dare touch any. Hopefully, the second half of this year will inspire a fast recover (what ?).

gI bought A Thousand Splendid Summers last week when I was in Bangkok. It's gonna be the next book I read when I'm done with The Inheritance of Loss which I'm about to finish. I have a horrible addiction, I just can't stop buying books even though I don't have much time to read. I bought seven books last week, which is probably more than I can read in the next six months even though I already have a big bunch of books on my must-read pile of books.
