IMAGE_005i’m going to try to post a pic taken from my phone every post.  or, i dunno, we’ll see how long it lasts.  it should make for some interesting posts.

today’s pic is the book that i just finished reading: Life of Pi.  you see the nice hand modeling job i did there?  honestly, i think the reason why i wanted to read the book so bad was the pi.  i dunno, secretly i guess i thought it was a book about math.  oh, how wrong i was.  it starts off kind of slow, but it picks up in the middle and the end.  and i definitely wanted to read more when the story was over.  i guess i needed some closure.  i would recommend this book.  chapters are short (which i love), and there’s animals (also which i love).  it deals with religion, reasoning, and survival.  i think i’m more happy with the fact that i finished it.

you see, i buy a lot of books without reading them, or if i do read them, i usually never finish them.  my completion rate is pretty low.  i’d say 1 out of every 10 books i buy will be finished within 5 years of buying it.  haha!  and yet i still buy more books.  what’s wrong with me?  there’s a quote that goes:

We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge.” -John Naisbitt.

That’s totally me.  i have so much information around me, but i don’t know a thing.  ahhh… books will be my comfort.

  2. i also picked up the book bc of my inner dorkiness which was attracted by pi. although the storyline was completely different from what i had imagined, i was happy with it.
    you get five eprops for being such a good hand model.
