I do not finish the book I read. Yep.
I love reading, really. Though when I was in primary school I read mostly comics and the only books I read were the young detectives series and text books, revision books. Now that I think about it, this bad habit must have started back then. Back when I was into comics and the detective series. All the excitements built up throughout the entire reading suddenly had, must come to an end.

For few years I was not into reading books other than text books LOL but last year I started picking up the reading habit. The books I read are mostly sales and marketing related, self helps and some psychological, historical ones. It has been really fun really. I remember this one the most "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. That book is just amazing. Then, it hit me-that feeling of emptiness, lost after reading the books. "What now?" Now? Now, I have around 15 books that are just waiting to be read and done. But no, I could not bear the thought of it. I kinda regretted reading the first page. Like why must the authors make the first page so interesting and catchy? Hahaha
Usually it is after few chapters and I will go "Huh, not even an hour and I have read this much? Gotta stop," and never to open those books again...

It is like, a bummer. Having to know that one day, everything will end. Perish. Over. Nothing lasts. Knowing that nothing lasts does not mean one is prepared to face the end, the bummer. I wonder if the quote "life is a journey, not a destination" came to be.
