I have a thing for good music. In my search of it again I came across this track. Amazing lyrics and music. there is something about the video too.

"Bite chunks out of me
You're a shark and I'm swimming
My heart still thumps as I bleed
And all your friends come sniffing."


This is how I put it; three stages of a book reader.

1) The initial, I would call it the 'clueless' stage, is/are the books that your syllabus suggest and you read them. You are fed these books.

2) OK! So you love what you read, you decide you want to read more and more. So you ask around, Google a bit, book reviews. I would call it the 'inquisitive stage'. You proudly call yourself an avid reader. The time element involved here is huge.

3) After going through these two stages the reader reaches a whole new level, an advanced stage. The reader learns to let go in terms of the fact that he knows what's good and what's not. What writers are exceptional and those who are mere commercial and how great a Pulitzer/Booker is.

Once you reach this stage the books take the front seat. It chooses you. You don't.

Dear Blog,

A month left to my marriage and as the clock takes me nearer to that date, my restless mind makes me wander farther away from it. I realize it is not easy to change and melt your identity into someone else's. It is definitely not easy to get dressed up in that whole new attire stitched and ironed for you by the new ones in your new home. It's tough!

I have just one thought and sentiment to share with my future husband. And it is the what ifs. I am feeling blue and this is exactly what I feel now.
