There are movies and TV series remakes, but it cannot replicate the same gratifying experience of reading a novel.

Novel Reading; life's best is good novels, reading books outside, the good life and reading excellent books

There are fast-reading gifted people, and there are those who consciously reads fast to keep the upbeat pace of finishing books. I’m neither of them, because I take my time in the feast of a read.

Quality novels are ingenious. It’s one my best chosen creative work of all. It’s meticulous, containing both reason and emotion while nobility uncompromising. I like it more when I invest emotions with the characters, and I appreciate the intricate characters buildup and story conflicts and surprises.

From writer’s hardwork of first drafts, then to editing phase, only to be critiqued and reduced by agents, more by editors, until it was in its prestige for publishing. This game is a damn miraculous progress. I appreciate the hard work and persistence of authors.

I devour Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist, Michael Crichton’s Next, Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner, Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons, even Homer’s The Iliad. But I always go back to my home genre, Young Adult.

J.K. Rowling, thanks for your share of story.
