Given the choice, which do you prefer? Real history? Or historical fiction? (Assume, for the purposes of this discussion that they are equally well-written and engaging.)
I haven’t read any books of these genre (suggestions please?) because sometimes I’d rather pick romance rather than these serious genres. But if I were given the chance, I’d pick the former – Real History. For a person who is still growing up and has more to face in the future, reading something with validated facts is important. Growing up is a process and in that process, reading is one of the helpful variables.
Speaking of History, do you ever wonder why Christmas- which is said to be the birthday of Jesus Christ – is celebrated on December 25 when it was never stated on the Bible? My Dad did not give any explanation and my teacher has never asked us this question too! I wonder why! Anyone who could fill the gaps on my brain for this question?
Nevertheless, I wish you guys a Merry Merry Christmas. I pray that our prayers may be answered that though we don’t live in mansions with professional Chefs, may our tables be full and our lives be blessed as we end this year through the celebration of Christmas.
I am thankful more than anything of what I received. I did not regret nor am I still saddened by past events since, as the name implies, it is past. Nobody hates me and I hate nobody. My family is complete and breathing and my Mom’s job is stable and I’m going on well with my studies. Another year is approaching and I pray that my year as well as yours may be fruitful.
I pray that everyone would still have complete fingers with all the fireworks that are going to be lighted this Midnight and on January 1 here on the Philippines. I pray for lesser crime rates.
And, also, whatever was portrayed on the movie 2012 is never gonna happen. It has hunted me as I lie down in bed though I know it’s never gonna happen.
Before I end this post, I’d like to share some good finds this Thursday:
Do you have unwanted catalogs or pieces of paper that are a waste to throw (how ironic) even in the Recycled Bin? For us, people with a passion for reading, we could use these bits of paper as bookmarks – not just any insert-me-bookmark that could slip off and get lost but page hugging bookmarks. I meant this:
Head over to Dolce Bellezza – a very beautiful blog, with this interesting Italian author, neat layouts, beautiful reviews that I just found.
Which do you prefer, Real History or Historical Fiction? Anything interesting this Thursday?
