Give me one good book and I can sit all day long reading it. I can’t remember when were the first time I interested in books. Maybe since I was very little. I remembered read Enid Blyton’s novels and child detective serials.
I like fiction and fantasy story. But recently I got interested in history, especially Indonesia history. Soon after my journey to Cambodia, when I wrote about it on my Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian language) blog, somehow I read that once upon a time Cambodia was under Sriwijaya Kingdom’s territory.
Sriwijaya Kingdom existed on 7th century – 14th century. Its capital was on the island of Sumatera, but its territory included the area that in modern-day become Malay Peninsula, Thailand and Cambodia. Suddenly I got very curious about this great kingdom and I bought a book written by Coedes about history of Indonesia Archipelago before Islam came to the islands and before the Dutch arrived and build a colony here. After I finished reading the book, I got more and more interested in history.
I also like chicklit novels, especially if its funny.
I love Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but I don’t like Harry Potter.
I also dislike story about triangle love between human, werewolf and vampire :p
According to Goodreads record (a social media for bookworm) last year I read 16 books. So this year I decided to join Goodreads | 2012 Reading Challenge.
My goal is to read 20 books in one year and 5 of the books are history.
Well, wish me luck (^__^)b
