Gerakan Seribu Buku




Welcoming Lunar new year by tidying up my bookshelves . It's also related to my hubby's idea to launch Gerakan Seribu Buku at his campus. He wanted to spread the book freak virus among campus people, i.e. the lecturers and the students. He first asked his students to conduct a program in campus. This program will be associated with books. People may participate by giving their second books and they also can watch special pograms, e.g. Bedah Buku. The committee will invite several popular authors, such as: A. Fuadi (Negeri 5 Menara), Asma Nadia, and some others to come to campus and discuss about their books. The programs will be held within 3 days and it'll be started tomorrow. I wish them luck in their programs. I always love creative youth.

Back to my bookshelves mission, last night I succeeded in selecting my novel collections. Trapped among tons of books really put me into ecstasy. It seems that along with my age, there are some novels that are not suitable for me anymore. These including my Agatha Christies' collections, Sydney Sheldon's novels, Marry Higgins Clarks, and many more. Lately I am a bit choosy in deciding which books to read. I love a book with a humane mission or at least there is something that I could learn from the book. Not only a simple story without any message. What a wise middle aged woman. Ouch..I suddenly feel so old:)

This morning I asked my hubby to deliver the books to his campus. Really hope that my books will have great journeys, read by many readers and entertain them all. Just thinking about that stuff already make me feel warm. I guess it's just the magic of giving.

Ana, We don't have any family library. In fact our books are scattering around our home, here, there and everywhere. While the bookshelves are in a mess, honestly not a nice object to be pictured :(

Tell you what, the library is already on my wish list (since long a go), as soon as it is realized, the photo will be shown up here. Promise...:)
