Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time reading. My scripts aside, I actually stumbled on 2 new magazines in the market, so out of curiosity, I decided to buy a copy each to take a look.
The first one is a French adapted magazine “L’Officiel” and I was drawn to the pretty picture of the model on the cover! The fashion photography is rather brilliant and the articles are very up-market.
The second one is a local magazine “Smitten” which is all about shopping, so it’s good for those who like to know where to buy dresses, bags, accessories etc.
I’ve also recently started on 2 new books, “Lolita” and “Foods To Fight Cancer”. The coincidental thing is that I actually started reading the latter before I knew I would be involved in the Cancer Charity Show next Sunday. So I guess by some twisted fate, it all came together.
I never walk out of a bookstore without buying a book, which is a very bad habit, because there’s so much I want to read and so little time to do it. I read based on my mood, that’s why sometimes you’ll see me reading all sorts of books on different topics.
Reading fiction is like watching a movie, only it’s my own imagination. And it’s more fun that way!
As for non-fiction titles, they vary, because they can be about religion, or about health or even about stock investing (bleah, which I realise is not my cup of tea for now).
The only finance-economics-related book that I can swallow would be books like “The Undercover Economist”. It’s written in a very conversational way, which makes it easy to read and understand (although some of the real-life examples are very US-based). I was very intrigued by how a lot of pricing decisions, or even our own decisions made are related to economics.
I can’t derive more joy from reading, but for now, I got to go concentrate on my scripts and prepare for an audition tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
Although I think chances are quite slim 😦
Oh yes by the way, what’s everybody reading? Feel free to share!
Loves ya all!
