Currently Reading: Touching My Father's Soul - Jamling T. Norgay

All of these I recommend!
When I was little, I hated reading. As a grew a little older and wiser my appetite for reading grew. Now I am an avid reader. I love reading. Before moving to Singapore, I loved to read Fiction books. It amazed me to read stories about people's imaginations and the stories that can create from just thinking of a new idea. Since moving and now traveling, I have new found love for non-fiction books. Reading about events that really did happen and people who have survived the unthinkable; can be inspiring, dreadful and happy. Sometimes, I cannot believe that some stories really did happen, they seem so far fetched!
