The voice that keeps calling is getting louder. The ideas are flooding like how the South West monsoon rains has caused Philippines to flood and to suffer. I have talked about the thought a while back and thinking about it doesn’t seem to stop now.
I wanted to start a new site solely for book reviews. I don’t know if it is a good idea, I am not sure if I am qualified enough do such. All I know is, often times I ended up with something to say after I read books.
Rev, who is a very good friend of mine shared a dream with me about putting up a library in our hometown someday. It was just a topic during our chats over miles across yet I seem to hold on to that particular conversation. We both have collections of books we acquired and we thought it would be nice to let others who can’t afford( I didn’t say that we are well off enough to easily to buy those) to be able to enjoy the books that we have come to love. We learned so much through reading and we enjoyed this passion. We made the school library a place to hang-out in our free time, in between classes and laboratory sessions during college days. The deadly looks of the pouting, old-maid librarian gave us and our friends every time we enter the library still creates a clear picture on my mind. The worn-out, poorly painted table at the center of the periodicals section, where we love to sit may still have my name underneath that I wrote defying the rules against vandalism. Yes, we love the library. Not because it has most of the reading materials that we love, not because we can find the references that we need, which we can’t, as it is incomplete by all means, but because for the lamest reason that the library is air-conditioned. It is conducive for reading and it has wide tables that we can use when we did our Histopathology drawings of everything we get to see under the microscope.
The library is a plan that is impossible to materialized as of the moment. But the habit of reading never stopped. We are not college students anymore that we can hang-out at the library or stay up late at nights in the dormitory to discuss books and other interesting topics such as sex and boys(whatever!). The technology has improved so much that domains are created. Why not make use of these innovations? Blogging has been a good outlet for me to relieve stress, hence, why not make it another outlet to get the passion of reading and publishing gets going.
I want this and I hope to heavens I can do it!
