My to-read book: February '15

Since young, I have always been an avid reader. My spectacles prove my point. I started reading Enid Blyton books at around 5 or 6 (I can't recall) and have been addicted to books ever since. During the recent years, however (around 13), when I started my secondary school life and got a smart phone, I continued reading, but reading ebooks

There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book. —Marcel Proust

Now, I read ebooks, but then I realised that the feeling was different. Mostly, by ebooks I meant wattpad, where authors self-publish their stories. It wasn't exactly official ebooks, some didn't have proper grammar and usually the plotlines were cliche.  

So, I decided to resume my reading habit, starting with this book. Discussions on Youth by Daisaku Ikeda. This book was a gift two years ago from my piano teacher.

"I trust all of you. I live for your happiness, for your future. You are the hope of humanity. Each of you is hope itself. Each posses a precious treasure.
Please accept this book as a companion on the journey called life, and live courageously in the twenty-first century-the most important century for humankind."
I plan to finish this book and write a review here, on this blog.

 The greatest gift is a passion for reading. —Elizabeth Hardwick

A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time—proof that humans can work magic. —Carl Sagan
