I have previously mentioned in my holiday-sum-up post (here) that I got some books for christmas. Not all of these are from christmas-17, and I haven’t got time to read them all either. In between the exam-revision, I needed a short break from all the stress. Besides from hitting the gym, and buy groceries, I took the time to read one of my books.
I finished “Transfervindue” in one evening, even though I’m a slow reader. There’s only 90 pages, so I thought why not just finish it immediately. It’s a danish book written by Maria Gerhardt. It’s about a cancer patient who moves into this fancy Hospice facility on Zealand where the sick people are treated by nuns and doctors. It’s like an isolated sanitized city just for terminally ill patients. It’s a dark comedy and about everything all the healthy people are doing wrong according to the main character.
Personally I think it’s a good book, and gives an inside on what it’s like to be a patient of such cruel decease, and almost heartbreaking details within those few pages. It’s worth the read.
I cannot wait till I get time to read my other books – I’m already few pages into “Niceville” (aka. The Help), and already want to order more books. I used to read so much when I was younger, and hate that I stopped. So I definitely want to read more and reduce watching movies for a while. I’ve made a wish list of books, and have a dream of mine to make my own home-library. That would be so cool! 🙂 ♥
P.s – have you noticed the updated header on my blog? I thought it was finally time to change it up a little, it’s been almost a year since I updated it last 😉
