I love books. I love reading books. I love buying books. I have more unread books on my shelf than the read ones. Still I love buying books. Does that happen with you too? 😛
In January this year, when we weren’t much worried about the stepping out of our homes, I had gone on a date with myself, the very first one, to World Book Fair. On this date, I decided to start adding Harry Potter to my collection and bought the first first two parts of the series.
It took me nine months to pick up the first book and actually start reading it 😀
When I finished reading the book, the most important thing I realised was this:
Movies keep you engaged with the thrill while books let you enjoy the the minute details you miss out while watching movies.
But I strongly believe in reading books before watching their adaptation in movies. What do you think about it?
After reading the first book, I plan to watch the movie again. I think I would understand it better now. Every time I watch it, I learn or discover something new. That happens with reading too. Does that happen with you?
P.S.: There’s festive season sale going on and I spotted parts 4-7 had a good offer. So, they would be in my hands soon. I’m wondering if I should reading skip Prisoner of Azkaban until I get a good discount on it online (don’t really want go out to buy it because corona :/). Why are books so expensive? 😦
