Back In JB: Long Way To Go

I actually have got a job. Data entry. Temporary though. Need to find a better job, cause I work for abour 3 hours a day, 5 times a week? So the pay is kinda measly. But work-wise its alright. Just wished I got paid more :).

Anyways, just finished reading Mitch Albom's "The Five People You Meet In Heaven". I liked his previous book, "Tuesdays With Morrie", so I was expecting a damn good follow-up with this second book. You know what? Even this book was good. Better in fact. One of the best books I've ever read. I'm amazed with his writting, but appauled by its price. Books are getting ridiculously priced these days.

Anyhow, if you DO get a chance to read it, please do. Its worth your time. Very descriptive, and kinda addictive, cause you never know what's gonna happen next. Especially liked the last person he met in heaven. You would never imagined who it was. Touching? Yes.

Subsequently, I have FINALLY started reading Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince(6th book) at 3.30am earlier on. Borrowed it from cuz Ash few weeks back. After reading part 1,2,3 and 4, the long wait for the 5th book made me lose interest a little bit. But after reading the first chapter of book 5, I always get addicted with the Harry Potter series and can't put it down.

Same thing occured earlier on at 3am. The thick black book didn't grab my attention. Its size put me off a little. I'm impatient. I want to know the ending. ASAP. Sometimes while reading the ending of a chapter, I'd jump straight to the last line and slice the climax! I hate myself for that. But I'm impatient! What else can I say?

So I contemplated at 3am. To read or not to read? I thought I might have out-grown Harry Potter. I admit, I have become substantially lazy. I LOVE imaginations, but I didn't know if I could bother to put my mind to an exercise of Hogwarts or King's Cross Station. I have been mentally drained quite bit this year.

"Harry Potter, magic, flying brooms. Five books, what else can be new?", I pondered to myself. Contemplated some more. "Everybody else read it more than a year ago, its not so great NOW already what?"

To long I wasted time, and just striped the book of its removeable cover, and read each word on it. From the tiny synopsis to JK Rowling's background.

Then I read the first chapter: The Other Minister.

Now I'm hooked on it again. JK Rowling, you have done it again.

Ok enough blogging for today, gotta get back to my bed.

Harry's lying on the bed waiting for me. I must say, he seems more attractive than he used to!
