Reading Novels

Reading Novels

For me reading novels is a great hobby .When I was 10 years old, I went to a book shop to buy some books that I could use for school. While I was reading the titles on the shelves, there was a very interesting title in the novel section called “The Riots of Senses”. I picked up the novel and looked at the content. I wanted to buy it but it was very expensive. The owner of the book shop was our neighbor so that I enhanced my relationships with his son by visiting him while…

Dearest by Ayumi Hamasaki

It would be nice if we could put away and throw out

everything except what really mattered, but

reality is just cruel.

In such times,

I see you laughing

whenever I close my eyes.

Until the day I reach eternal sleep,

that smiling face will

have to stay with me without fail.

People are all sad, so

they go and forget, but--

For that which I should love,

For that which gives me love, I will do what I can.

Back then,…

Learn all the words, don't mind if it's used or not !

Yesterday, I took my idiom book unwillingly and sat near my brother that was watching a movie in English language. I was reading the book and suddenly spotted an idiom " Blood is thicker than water " = family loyalties are stronger than other relationships.I just told by myself within such laziness " is it really used in speaking or writing so that I care and learn it ? -.- "

Exactly when I turned the page, some1 in the movie said " Come on ! Blood is thicker than water "
