bad karma

bad karma

Almost three years ago now I lost my reading mojo for the second time - and as reading has always always been such a big part of me and my life it has been a constant sorrow since then. Obviously. Anyone who loves to be wrapped up in a good book at pretty much any given time knows just exactly how much that means. - but finally, fingers crossed, I think I'm slowly getting there again.

Because it *only* took me two months to finish "Bad karma" by David Safier. Granted it was a rather entertaining read, but a bit more chicklit-ish and shallow than I had thought and hoped. My initial views remain and I don't think it can all be blamed on a bad translation (German - English). A great idea for a book, not very well carried out but not a complete waste of reading time. That about sums it up for me.

Still, the concept of karma intrigues me on many levels and after reading this book I will never ever look at ants and anthills the same way again.

I'm now on a mission to finish a small heap of books I have only a few chapters left in and then, then I will give you a glorious book post with very short reviews because guess what, the books I finished just before I reached the state of lost reading mojo is still in a pile to be reviewed. I may not remember them in detail the way I would have liked now, but I remember the feeling, the things I loved or disliked and as sharing is caring I can at least give you a hint of their readworthiness on a 1-5 scale.

I've decided that weather allowed, when not working or otrherwise engaged, I will spend a good portion of my time on a blanket in garden, finishing ol' books. I think it is my happy place calling.
