When you feel lonely you need a good friend who can understand you. I have some great friends and they can make my day and I can spend my entire life (not literally) with them, but they don’t understand me – at all. No one..maybe one of them is reading it and thinks that he/she can but believe me – NOPE. Maybe because I speak more with my eyes and gestures instead of words.
I’ve been feeling alone a lot lately, I don’t know why so I bought some good friends. Yes, bought some friends.
“You bought friends..? Are you kinda crazy or something?”
No, but a great man once said (or maybe he said it more than once after it became famous):
A good book is a good friend. It will talk to you when you want it to talk, and it will keep still when you want it to keep still – and there are not many friends who know enough for that.
I don’t know the name of that great man (or maybe woman), but I know that he is right. Since my childhood, I was never fond of reading books. I hated it..hated. I loved comic books, but not other books.
Why? Because all I even had were school books and I wasn’t interested in reading those books, unless it’s poetry or some great story. I never liked school…because I never liked the education system. I was a good student but I hated school. I never ever cared about my marks or standings in the class. Plus, it was a government school. For those who are not aware, condition of education system is terrible in India…and the condition of government schools is way too much terrible. I saw a lot of stuff that I would never want my future children to see in their school. It was just terrible…just terrible.
I never had a chance to read some good books. I don’t hate reading at all. I read a lot of stuff online and even write a lot. I even wrote my own book, which is available at this link. Self-promotion..ah 😉
Few years ago my friend passed me a book and it was Three mistakes of my life by Chetan Bhagat, who is a best-selling author and that book is India’s #1 selling book. I wasn’t interested in that book and I’m still not interested in it. I don’t like those books. He’s not someone I admire or something which falls under my area of interest. It’s my own opinion and I have nothing against Chetan Bhagat.
I’m pro-wrestling fan and I love every part of it. I’m a huge fan of Chris Jericho, so I decided to pick his 2nd autobiography(Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps) from the internet and decided to read it. It was amazing..!
Just to make it clear – yes, it was a pirated book from the internet because I had no at that time. Sorry, Chris, but I promise I’ll order this book legally from Amazon when your 3rd book will come out. I’ll order both of them – or maybe even the first one, so I’ll finally pay for it.
I seriously don’t have enough money to pay for books, bills, hosting and all, so sometimes pirated content is the only option for hardcore fans. Oh yea, you can gift me Amazon gift cards from this link – only if you even make a profit because of something made or written by me 🙂
So, I recently watched all the seasons of How I Met Your Mother and fell in love with the show. Earlier this month I was doing some random stuff when I saw The Playbook, the holy grail, on Amazon.in. I had enough money at that point so I ordered The Playbook, The Bro Code & Bro On The Go from Amazon.
It was good to know that there are some LEGEN(wait for it)DARY books on Amazon. I read them and I loved all of them. So then I saw The Art of Mind Reading by Henrik Fexeus on FlipKart, and placed the order.
If you’re reading this article then I’ll recommend you to go and grab that book. It’s an awesome book!
On a related note, I just ordered this book (just now) from Amazon.in. I barely have money to pay for it…but we will see :)… placed it..
I guess soon I’ll have to order a book about mental disorder of ordering books online!! I’m spending A LOT of money on books right now.
There are a lot of books in my Amazon wish list and I’m pretty sure I’ll order all of them one-by-one. Having a hard time because of ordering these books – but a good time reading them 🙂
