I long for freedom, and when I get it, I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I will surely be happy.

I haven't been reading lately,I do not know why,I haven't exactly been in the best mood for reading,I have these weird thoughts that keep haunting me day and night,I can't stop thinking anymore...I can't drown myself in a book an forget the world anymore. Have I lost that forever??
Ever since I've opened that secret door in my mind...that door that all these ideas flooded from,ever since I've opened it I am just not comfortable...I can't find peace
Look at me!I'm whining all day long like a drama queen! 0_O

I need a good book ASAP,any recommendations??

I didn't like the Millennium Trilogy by Larson the swedish crime thing... he could have cut hundreds of pages instead of all hal la3i ili bala 6a3meh.

I enjoyed a book written by a Yugoslavian/ Croatian author by the name of
Dubravka Ugrešic and the book is called the ministry of pain.

if you aren't in a reading mood,switch to
writing:putting these weird thoughts on paper
might help.

A good book is the Holy Quran.
A good read: "in forest dark at moors; the Doomish story." :P

I'm having the same problem. I'm half way reading George bush biography and I'm bored with his lies, and the thought that he thinks he is smart. I stopped.

Why are u banned from the lib?? shoo 3amleh? 6albeh indecent lit :P

Rain said...

indecent lit.?sho shaiefny shab?lol
I'm late (as in 6 months late) returning books hehehe *smiley baree2*

observationofalostsoul said...

bas il shabab bi6lobo +18 lit :P I don't know you didn't return Lady Chatterley's Lover or Miller's Tropic of Cancer.

mo 7ilo tkooni late next time =)

Rain said...


and I'm not gonna be late,because there's not gonna be a next time because I'm banned till after I graduate!

observationofalostsoul said...

keef ya3ni after u graduate... this policy is absurd.

Google Lady Chatterely's Lover; it made a huge case in the 1960s and revoked publication rules in the UK. Tropic of Cancer was a banned book in the 20th century... just examples of "indecent lit"

Rain said...

The more I'm late the more time they ban me,I'm late....very late lol

observationofalostsoul said...

But why do they have a ban after grad policy?? that doesn't sound fair

Rain said...

hl2 assume that I'm one month late returning a book,the JU library's policy says that this month is to be doubled into 2 months of banning me
2 months=>4 months banning me 3=>6..w hakaza
hl2 what if I'm banned for 3 months and I'm graduating in 2 months?that's what I meant
Of course after graduation I can't borrow books in the first place because I'm not a student anymore and I don't have an ID,unless I register for my master and then I'll even have more privileges he3 he3 :) such as I can take more than 4 books(which is the maximum for a bachelor student) also I will have longer time before I'm banned from the library,bachelor students have like 10 days,master students have like a month...
Professors I think have 5 months!
w hakaza...any questions? :D
