I had discussed last month about a Novel I had been reading. It was 550 plus pages long. The Thriller genre "The Matarese Countdown" has been an exciting read. Gripping, and full of action. There were a few times when things looked like getting too complex and confusing. Finally I have completed it. I have a next one too but I plan to read that after a gap. So any book or Novel that you are reading as of now?

@Nakitakona Oh yes. Also I think a few Bollywood movies were inspired by this movie.

@Apple111 Yes reading is a good habit. It can also act as a tool to divert our mind from problems and otherwise also it is good for our mind. So are you enjoying this site?

@LadyDuck Let us hope that things are much better then. Here, we have had increased cases in Himachal Pradesh- which is a hilly state and facing quite cold weather, Rajasthan and the western state of Gujarat. National capital Delhi too is under stress. Things do not look good as of now, although we also have had high number of recoveries.

@Butterfingers Well I discussed a bit in another post. Today we have an ongoing geyser repair. The Geyser though of good quality is quite old now, and is needing repairs.

If it's not fan fiction, I don't willingly read it anymore. I actually got turned off to reading, since it'd been forced down my throat as a child.

@kaylachan I can understand. Here too kids are being asked to write book reviews, talk about books from early age. Not everyone can like it equally. It should be voluntary. Yet teachers have other ideas.

@Janet357 Yes quite a number of pages. Yet I now like books that take some good time to complete, as shorter books get read up quickly by me.
