Shern he loves reading. Or at least, he loves the books I read to him. At the moment, he is loving 'Goodnight Moon', 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', 'Where's Spot?', 'The Wheels On The Bus', 'The Little Engine That Could' and many others. He is indeed a little bookworm in our home.
And although he is only almost a year old, he has a small 3-tier bookshelf for his books. Some of the books belong to me. Me & my sis used to read them when we were young. Shern is currently only reading the 2nd-tier books. The rest are still much too difficult for him.
Needless to say, his mum (me!) is a bookworm too. I've read hundreds and hundreds of books, or maybe I should say even a thousand.
I've read almost all of Enid Blyton's books when I was young - and that is almost 500 of them I think. All the Faraway Tree series, the school series; St. Claire's, Naughtiest Girl in the School, Malory Towers, and the Mysteries such as Find Find Outers & Dog, Famous Five, Secret Seven, and even those short stories such as 5 o'clock Tales, The Strange Umbrella, etc. Oohh...I used to love Enid Blyton.
And as I grew older, I started to read romance and teenage books such as Sweet Valley series, Sweet Dreams. Now I am reading thrillers and general fiction - Sidney Sheldon, Danielle Steel, Colleen McCullough, Jeffrey Archer and even Harry Potter.
I don't quite fancy non-fiction, only a few such as Malcom Gladwell's Blink, Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People. And are Mitch Albom's books non-fiction? I love those.
So I have this 4-tier medium-sized bookshelf in the room dedicated for my books alone. It is getting pretty cramped though - it looks like I can go for bookshelf hunting the next time I go to Ikea.
And the biggest bookworm of all is hubby.
It is really ironic because he is someone who doesn't read AT ALL when he was young. He has not heard of Enid Blyton or Hardy Boys or Christopher Pike when he was young. And all of a sudden, he reads so much he scares me sometimes.
And the only place he wants to be when we go to Gurney Plaza is to bookstores - MPH & Popular. It drives me mad at times.
I mean, I get the right to pout when he brought along Annual Reports to our honeymoon, right?
But he only reads non-fiction. Mainly investment related books. I think ALL are investment-related books except for some motivation and sales books here and there.
And he gets 2 bookshelves. 2 BIG bookshelves.
One is the 6-tier Billy bookshelves which stands tall in his study room.
The other one is the built-in wall-to-wall bookshelf on the other side of his study room. Yes...it is that big - wall-to-wall from top to bottom.
But I guess it's fair, coz hubby pays for everything. He pays for ALL the bookshelves, and ALL of the books! So I guess that's the reason he gets 2 BIG bookshelves for himself! *jealous*
