To-day I finished reading On Writing. Quite a good book to read for aspiring writer like me;-)
Now, I want to seriously learn how to use my iMac-so I went to Kinokuniya Bookshop to buy a book entitled My Little iMac Book by Robbin Williams.

Now,I am half way through Stephen King's book On Writing.One thing I am sure he is not bullshitting anyone. Writing is hard work.To be a good writer, I must red a lot and write a lot! Not mention,I have to have good vocabulary,use good grammer and develop my own style...

Now, i realised that I have a long way to go before I can become a good writer.
So God,please give me the commitment and the patience to read,write and learn...........

I am glad to read Hamka Kenang-Kenangan Hidup when he reflected on his journey from the love of 'seni' to philosphy and then moved on to religion.

Bookstore:By Lynne Tillman

I had been looking all over London last year for the book, but no one is selling even at the Borders.To-day,I am lucky to get it at Kinokuniya in my own city in Kuala Lumpur.The book is about the Life and Times of Jeannette Watson and Books & Co-a tale of a great bookshop in New York City!
I just can't wait to read it.....

To-day I noticed my eldest son was reading the novel Tenggelamnya Kapal Van Der Wijck. Now, everyone has taken up ready as a hobby:-)))
To-day, my wife and my son went to Mischief Books looking for more books to encourage my son to read. My wife bought one religous book on 'doa' and me a book on Tok Kenali,the famous Ulama from Kelantan who taught my own father.

I am very happy indeed when my youngest son came to me and asked me to take him to the bookshop that I bought a story book for him two days ago. He enjoyed reading the book and he wanted me to buy him another book!

Your wishes is my command!
I think I may have succeeded in my project to instil a reading culture in him!
Thank God for it.
