Books, Reading and Challenges

Although it wasn’t the original plan for this blog, it has become a way for me to foster my love of reading and connect with other book-lovers.

  1. I want you to be happy, so “hi”. :)

    My blog wasn’t meant to be about books and reading, either, but oops! and I know have a book reviews page as part of it.

    We are readers, and as someone once said, “Wherever you go, there you are!”

  2. Hi :). Came across your blog by following a long chain of links about book bloggers from countries other than USA. I’m running a series on my blog at the moment about literature from countries we don’t get to hear much about. Am wondering if you might be interested?? It’s called A view from here – so far I’ve covered Canada, Phillipines and Sr iLanka. Denmark and France are next in line but I don’t have anyone from South Africa. The blog is http://bookertalk.com. If you’re interested, would you drop me an email to heenandavies at yahoo dot co dot uk? Or you can leave a comment on the blog. hope to hear from you

  3. Hey! I lovveeee to read too, BUT can’t seem to find the time..how do you manage to find time as a med student to read books besides Physio, Patho., and Internal Med.?? I’m currently studying for my USMLE:(

    • Hey hey. It’s a fine balance, and one I often overstep on the bookish side. Honestly there isn’t a good answer. I expect to be reading less this year, being my final year. Sometimes you have to know when to put the book down. But I find that it is possible to make a little time for reading, mostly… Good luck!

  4. Sorry you didn’t like Reluctant Intern. Have had much better ratings from the physicians who have read it, and most everyone else, too. What did you not like about it, other than my teasing of psychiatrists and the obvious male chauvinism I was trying to point out? It was much worse in the 70s than now, as was the racism, and the physicians’ good-old-boy network. Hope those are less intense in SA.

    • I’m still working on my review, and trying to figure out my own feelings too. The rating might change as well (most of my ratings do). It was very REAL, though, which gave me a lot of feelings. I think the racism is less intense in SA now, but the male chauvenism is still pretty prevalent. Will send you my review when I have it more polished. Oh, and I really did appreciate the opportunity to read your book!

Comments make me happy. Say hi :) | Currently trying to survive final year. Responses to comments may be slow.
