I don’t know anything about Genghis Khan and hence bought a 400-plus page book on the Mongol hero by John Man. Went off in lightning speed, skipped a page, another, another…yawn….sleep.. another.. I have “finished” reading.
And now, I don’t know anything about Genghis Khan.
Hey, I am not blaming the author, come on. I agree I am an awful reader.
OK, read this interesting piece in Bhavan’s Journal:
Goethe’s famous novel, “Sorrows of Young Werther,” sought glorification of suicide. Goethe was hardly 25 when he wrote it and the novel proved to be a startling European success. Following its publication in 1774, a spate of suicides was reported all over Europe, especially among love-lorn youth. Though I am also in the youth category, I don’t wanna read this book.
Life is short, let’s make it sweet. Right?
